Suspended player

Significant footballer for Bayer Leverkusen would not be able to help his team for the rest of the season.
Seven day ago the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS) has suspended Turkish international Hakan Calhanoglu on four months for breaching the agreement he had with Trabzonspor. In the process the tribunal also ordered him to pay the Trabzon based club 100.000 euros for damages. It all started in 2011 when, then 17 year old broke the deal by signing for Karlsruhe. Trabzonspor then sued Calhanoglu to FIFA which the world football organization assigned the case to the Turkish club. Dissatisfied about handling the subject he took the whole thing to CAS, which (unfortunately) has lost (again). This decision brought plenty of trouble to his club Bayer Leverkusen, which means that the 23 year old will miss Champions league knockout games against Atletico Madrid. Sports director Rudi Voller is actually in right when he commented this matter by saying 'It is a heavy blow for Hakan, but also for us. Although Bayer Leverkusen had nothing to do with the events in 2011, we are now being heavily punished. Now we are missing a very important player during a decisive part of the season'.
Being thrown out completely from the team and not able to play football, three days ago came the news that the midfielder will not receive nor wages nor any bonuses while he is on suspension.
