"I stop playing with the national team. I won't play with Turkey again". Arda Turan was very clear this week when he announced his retirement from international football.

According to the Turkish media, Barcelona's footballer had an incident with a journalist during a trip on Tuesday. Turan got violent with the journalist grabbing him from the neck.

"It's sad but I have no regrets", Arda added. "I have played in all the categories for Turkey, making a lot of sacrificies, but now I won't play again".

Turan confronted the journalist because he had said Barcelona's midfielder asked a lot of money to play for his country.
