Turkey right-back GÃƒÂ¶khan GÃƒÂ¶nÃƒÂ¼l has been removed from their provisional EURO 2008 squad due to a bruised second-metatarsal bone in his right foot.
Turkey coach Fatih Terim announced the decision together with national team doctors BÃƒÂ¼lent Bayraktar and Cengiz DinÃƒÂ§. “Scans have showed that GÃƒÂ¶khan should be rested for at least four weeks without participating in any training sessions,” said Terim.
“We did our best to keep him in our squad but our players' health is more important in any case. Therefore, we were forced to remove him from our squad. This decision will surely disappoint him. He will return to Istanbul and continue his treatment there.” The experienced coach added that he was not intending to call up a replacement for the FenerbahÃƒÂ§e SK defender.
