What They're Saying: Mario Gomez

"It was a difficult decision that I had to think about a lot. I have to tell you Besiktas fans personally that it is very heavy for me that I will not be playing for this great club in front of you wonderful fans in this unique stadium anymore. It is purely down to the terrible events that happened in the last few days. I hope you can understand that."

-- German star Mario Gomez telling fans of Istanbul-based Besiktas that he is leaving Turkey because of the  "political situation" in the aftermath of the attempted coup. (Facebook)
