Roma: Arda given prison sentence

Roma: Arda given prison sentence

Istanbul Basaksehir winger Arda Turan has been given a 32-month prison sentence ahead of his side’s Europa League clash with Roma.

Arda was charged with illegal possession of a firearm, plus intent to intimidate and cause panic, dating back to an incident that took place in October 2018.

However, the 32-year-old was cleared of sexual assault and local media reports the sentence has been suspended for the time being.

The Turk is considered one of his country’s greatest-ever exports, winning Spanish titles with Atletico Madrid and Barcelona.

Despite that, he has played just 31 times for Basaksehir since arriving from Barca in January of last year.

His price has plummeted to €1m on Transfermarkt and he was banned for 10 games last season after he attacked a referee.

Roma host Basaksehir next Thursday, before travelling to Istanbul on November 28.
