No bunk­ing off

The Irish Times - Monday - Sport - - Soccer -

We hear much talk about the dan­gers of so­cial me­dia this weather, but what hap­pened Galatasaray’s Ser­dar Aziz be­fore Christ­mas was the ul­ti­mate ex­am­ple of just how treach­er­ous it can be.

With the club due to play Si­vass­por on De­cem­ber 23rd, the Turk­ish in­ter­na­tional in­formed them that he had a tummy bug so would be un­able to re­port for duty. That was grand, un­til his wife posted a photo of him on In­sta­gram. In his sick bed? No, sun-bathing in the Mal­dives.

How did man­ager Fatih Terim take the news? Not too well. Aziz was promptly trans­fer-listed.

The moral of the story? If you’re bunk­ing off, don’t In­sta­gram your where­abouts.
