Turkish Footballer Walks Off The Pitch In Tears After Abuse From Crowd [VIDEO]

During a recent Turkish soccer match, a footballer walked off the pitch in tears after being on the receiving end of verbal abuse from a small set of supporters of his own team.

The incident happened during last week’s match between Trabzonspor and Rizespor in the Turkish Super League. The footballer,¬†Volkan Sen, walked off the pitch in tears after verbal abuse from 1-2 fans of his own club got the better of him.

The incident happened shortly before half-time, and his teammates were unable to console Sen. The footballer refused to come on in the second half and was replaced by Florent Malouda.

Trabzonspor coach Mustafa Akcay said:

“This is a human job. We have a person with an emotional implosion here. You could talk about discipline, but for me, respect for a human comes before discipline.”

The chairman of Trabzonspor added:

“It is impossible to condone fans swearing at a player, but I cannot accept a professional footballer leaving the pitch. You are not playing marbles in the street. There is no place for such behavior in our team.”

Here’s the video of the unfortunate incident:
