No bunking off
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.
