UEFA not to punish Turkish football players over military salute

The UEFA will not impose a fine on Turkey following its decision to investigate the military salute made by Turkish national team players during a match.

Turkish Football Federation official Servet Yardımcı told Demirören News Agency (DHA) that the international football body decided not to fine Turkey over the salute but will impose a fine of 50,000 euros over incidents involving Turkish fans during the Euro 2020 qualifiers, Daily Sabah reported.

In October, the UEFA launched an inquiry after the Euro 2020 qualifiers in Istanbul and France where Turkish players gave military-style salutes in celebration of goals.
