Video: Turkey Manager Fatih Terim Has Phone Confiscated During England Friendly

Turkey manager Faith Terim found himself in a spot of bother during this afternoon’s friendly with England – when officials confiscated his mobile phone.

The two international sides met at Manchester City’s Etihad Stadium for a Euro 2016 warm-up match, with both nations heading to France next month.

And it wasn’t too long before England were celebrating, with Harry Kane scoring to give the home side the lead after just three minutes.

However, the Turkey bench weren’t happy as Kane looked offside when he received the ball.

Amusingly, Terim confirmed those suspicions by looking up the goal on his mobile phone, and showing it to the fourth official:

Brilliantly, according to ITV commentator Clive Tyldesley, the phone was then kept by the official to prevent Terim from providing any evidence on any other incidents.

We applaud Terim’s inventiveness – well played, sir.

But taking the man’s phone off him? Seems way over the top.

This could set a new trend of every person on any given football bench armed with a phone and tablet.
