Russian clubs banned from signing Turkish players

Russian clubs will be banned from signing Turkish players during the upcoming winter break.

Relations between the countries have been strained since a Russian warplane was shot down by Turkish forces on the Syrian border, killing one pilot.

Russian sports minister Vitaly Mutko told R-Sport news agency that clubs had "already got the message"

"If anyone wants [to sign a Turkish player] during the break, there will not be such a possibility," he said.

Mutko said the sports sanctions would not affect Turkish players currently playing for Russian soccer clubs, such as Rubin Kazan's midfielder Gokdeniz Karadeniz, who joined the Tatarstan outfit in 2008.

"Everyone who has an existing contract will carry on working," Mutko said.

"They won't be here in the future but at the moment they have contracts and these will not be looked into."

Mutko added that Turkish companies already involved in constructing stadiums for the 2018 World Cup in Russia would be allowed to continue.

The sports ministry has also recommended that Russian football clubs cancel winter training camps to Turkey.

Several sides, including Lokomotiv Moscow, Spartak Moscow, FC Krasnodar and Kuban Krasnodar, have said they would heed the advice.

In addition, Mutko has confirmed that Russian athletes will be able to participate in tournaments organised in Turkey, with maximum security ensured.

He said that the measures that Russia is taking against Turkey will not impact on the calendar of international sports federations.

What do they think a Turkish player is going to do? Professional athletes are watched so closely it would be impossible to pull off anything.

Both logically and realistically this doesn't make sense.

In which case Russia's just being an asshole. Great.

Looks like Vladimir Putin wants a war (hopefully it won't happen)

@Aiden_Finland
First of all we have to understand that why Turkey has shot a Russian, an allied country's warplane down.
There are some inconsistent statements from Turkish authorities, President, PM...
I have a theory, but will not share it here. I don't think Putin wants a war. He wants to make Turkey feel very sorry about this.
But this kind of enforcements are unacceptable. What does this have to do with Football?

They have gone stupid mad . They are becoming like North Korea ironically with whom they are friends. Today, they bombed bread bakery in north Syria . If they are there to help Syrian people how about they start with humanitarian aid instead of bombing bread bakery that was feeding refugees .
