Former La Liga player, Arda Turan is going to be re-tried in a Turkish court due to sexual harassment charges which he was acquitted of the accusations earlier.

The ex-Turkey international played for

Atletico Madrid

and

Barcelona

in the past, while he finally moved out of Spanish football last summer and joined Istanbul-based team, Galatasaray.

Despite being acquitted of sexual harassment charge in 2019, he is about to have a re-trial after a Turkish court revoked the decision.

Arda

was imprisoned for shooting a gun which he had no license in a hospital for two years and eight months in Turkey – however, he will not be jailed unless he commits another crime in the next five years.

Arda

involved himself in a fight that left pop star Berkay Sahin with a broken nose at an Istanbul nightclub and it was claimed that the player had a gun.

The charges he's going to face are sexual harassment, inflicting intentional injuries and shooting a firearm in a way to cause panic and carrying weapons without a license.
