According to Sport Se, Turkey denied the German media report that Merih Demiral, the midfielder of the country's national team, was suspended for his controversial gesture during the team's match against Austria in the round of 16 of the European Nations Cup (Euro 2024).

Yesterday, the German publication Bild reported that the European Football Union (UEFA) has decided to use Turkey defender Demiral for Saturday's quarter-final match against their Dutch counterparts, in addition to another game that may be played in the semifinals of this competition. to deprive But the Turkish Football Federation denied this report. Uefa, for its part, has not commented on the matter or issued a final decision after announcing last Wednesday that it was investigating Demiral's possible “inappropriate conduct”.

After his second goal in Turkey's 2-1 win over Austria in the Round of 16 last Tuesday, Demiral made a wolf head with his fingers. The move has been attributed to the far-right movement known as Olkoko, which is linked to political allies of Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan.

Presidential sources have told the German news agency (dpa) that Erdogan is going to attend his country's match against the Netherlands in the German capital. While local media reported that this action was an attempt to show his personal solidarity with the Turkish national team.

German Interior Minister Nancy Wieser strongly condemned the player's behavior, while Turkey summoned the German ambassador yesterday to protest the harsh reactions to the incident.

Meanwhile, Demiral said after the Austria game that he just wanted to be proud of being Turkish and stressed that there was no hidden message behind the move.
