Former Barcelona winger Arda Turan has reportedly been given a 16 match ban after he pushed a linesman.

After assessing the incident, the Turkish Professional Football Discipline Board has made a decision to impose a lengthy ban, meaning that Turan will miss half of next season.

The ban might seem harsh but it's broken down into 10 games for the push, three more for verbal insults and three more for threatening the referee.

In inclusion with the 16-match ban Turan also received a fine of 39,000 Turkish liras.

Basaksehir were leading 1-0 at the time but conceded a late equaliser after being reduced to nine men.

Turan was then given a red card by the match referee and could be seen continuing to rant as he marched off the pitch.

Arda Turan has been banned for 16 matches after the Turkey global pushed a match official.

Basaksehir's coach Abdullah Avci had defended his wayward star - who joined the club on a two-and-a-half year loan deal from Barcelona back in January - in the aftermath of the incident.

Turan, who has won 100 caps for Turkey, makes no secret of his admiration for President Recep Tayyip Erdogan, who attended his wedding earlier this year.

Avci's men now sit in third position on level points with Fenerbache and three behind league leaders Galatasary with games against Antalyaspor and Kasimpasa coming up later this month.

Fenerbahce will face Akhisar later Thursday in the final after being given a walkover when Besiktas refused to turn up to the resumption of the abandoned game.
