Besiktas banned by UEFA

UEFA ban Turkish club Besiktas from competing in next season's Europa League because of their financial problems.

UEFA have suspended Besiktas from European competition next season because of the Turkish club's ongoing financial problems.

The governing body's disciplinary committee have decided that Istanbul-based side, who had been warned that they faced expulsion earlier this month, had violated too many regulations.

As a result they will not feature in the Europa League next time out, while they will also be expelled for a further five years if they break any more rules.

A number of the club's players, including Manuel Fernandes and Matteo Ferrari, have recently complained that they have not been paid for several months.
