This football video from Turkey is called Hakan Şükür – The King – 100 Goals.
Unfortunately, it looks like President Erdogan of Turkey, after emulating first Tony Blair, later Adolf Hitler, is now emulating the royal family of Bahrain, who persecute and torture football players and other sports people.
Translated from NOS TV in the Netherlands:
Turkish football legend Hakan Şükür indicted
The Turkish football legend Hakan Şükür has been indicted for insulting President Erdogan and his son on Twitter. What those insults are is not known. According to correspondent Lucas Waagmeester that will not be apparent soon. “Turkish media probably won’t report on this because of fear that they themselves may be indicted for insulting the president.”
Sukur (44) and Erdogan have been at odds with another for several years. Şükür was from 2011 to 2013 a member of parliament for Erdogan’s AK Party. But in 2013 he left the party after Erdogan accused the influential cleric Fethullah Gulen residing in the United States of conspiring against Turkey. …
Şükür denies that the insulting words on Twitter were addressed to Erdogan and his son. When the trial against him will begin is not known. He may get a prison sentence of four years.
Hakan Şükür was one of the most successful footballers from Turkey. He played from 1987 to 2007, including at Galatasaray. The ‘Bull of the Bosphorus’, as is his nickname, is a national hero in Turkey. He was there in 2002, with Turkey third in the World Cup in South Korea. He scored the fastest ever goal in a World Cup, after eleven seconds against South Korea, trained by Guus Hiddink, in the battle for third place.
