Calhanoglu blames father for his ban

- AFP, BERLIN

Feb 4, 2017-

Hakan Calhan-oglu says his father will never again be involved in his career as the Turkey international and Leverkusen star begins his four-month ban for breach of contract. The 22-year-old, Leverkusen’s joint top-scorer with six league goals, is banned for all bar the last few weeks of the season after Thursday’s decision from the Court of Arbitration for Sport. Leverkusen, ninth in Germany’s top flight, will be without their goal-scoring winger for the season’s key phase. They face Atletico Madrid in the last 16 of the Champions League in three weeks time and must finish in the top four to qualify for Europe’s top competition.
