Eto'o suspended by Turkish club after racism remarks

Samuel Eto'o has been dropped by Turkish club Antalyaspor after making comments on social media about racism.

The former Barcelona striker wrote on his Instagram account: "Perhaps some people do not feel respect for me because I am black."

The 35-year old then wrote a second post denying the remark was alluding to Antalyaspor chairman Ali Safak Ozturk, who has criticised Eto'o's performances this season.

Eto'o: Antalyaspor chairman my "brother"
Eto'o called the chairman his "brother" in the second post and added that the Turkish people had gotten behind him "wholeheartedly".

"My message was to a person who criticises me unjustly for years and while he continues his criticisms, I kept winning trophies," said Eto'o, who has also played for Chelsea, Everton and Inter Milan.

Antalyaspor however released a statement saying that Eto'o would now have to undergo separate training sessions from the squad until his case was heard by their executive board.

Bugün instagram hesab?mdan yay?nlam?? oldu?um bir mesaj ile ilgili bir konuyu netle?tirmek isterim; yay?nlam?? oldu?um mesaj hiç bir ?ekilde karde?im ve ba?kan?m Ali ?afak ile ilgili de?ildir. E?er bu ülkede, bu ülkedeki taraftarlar y?llar önce ?spanya'da ya?ad???m bir problem ile ilgili beni tüm yüreklilikleriyle destekledilerse, bu tarz bir konuyu bu ülkenin insan?n? kastederek gündeme getirmem mümkün de?ildir. Mesaj?m y?llard?r bana nedensiz yere y?k?c? ele?tiriler yapan, o ele?tirdikçede kupalar kazand???m kendini bilmez bir ki?iye idi. Sana tekrar söylüyorum; Antalyaspor'un ilk 4 maç?n? kullanarak, "birilerini" sat?n alarak beni ele?tirmeye devam etme. Tak?m arkada?lar?m,antrenörlerim, idari kadrom ve ba?kan?m Ali ?afak önderli?inde, bu sene için koymu? oldu?umuz hedeflerimizi ba?araca??z. Ama ?unu bilmelisinki ben korkak de?ilim. Bana her sald?rd???nda, cevab?m? verece?im. Irk?ma yapm?? oldu?un çirkin sald?r?ya gelince; tekrar söylüyorum, 18 y?ld?r bu i?in içindeyim. Geldi?im yer belli, en iyisini yapmak için hala sava??yorum.??????Adrenaline ????????????????????????????????
