Reports: Turkey's Gokhan Tore and Hakan Calhanoglu settle row
Besiktas midfielder Gokhan Tore posted a holiday picture on his Facebook account this past Sunday showing him in the company of fellow Turkish international Hakan Calhanoglu and Stoke City Austrian striker Marko Arnautovic.
All three smile at the camera and Tore added the caption "I wish all of you a nice evening. #holidays #summer"
The picture is being touted as proof that Tore and Calhanoglu have settled a conflict that started in October of 2013 after Turkey's World Cup qualifier against Holland at Amsterdam.
In October of 2013, Calhanoglu told told German television channel ZDF that Tore and the man had gained access to the hotel room he shared with Turkey and Leverkusen teammate Omer Toprak.
According to the account, Tore's friend allegedly threatened Calhanoglu and Toprak with a gun.
Calhanoglu told ZDF: "I was hit and I was lying in a corner. He then came up to me and said: 'Don't move or I will shoot you.' I was curled up in the corner of the room -- I couldn't move, I was scared for my life."
Toprak had since refused to play for Turkey on the times that Tore was selected.
"Tore played with my life and my career," he told Suddeutsche Zeitun this past March. "When I am on the pitch, I need the trust of all of my teammates. If there is none, it makes no sense."
Now Calhanoglu has reportedly decided otherwise. He returned to the Turkish national team after holding talks witch coach Fatih Terim in February.
Bild reports that Calhanoglu and Tore met casually while on holiday. Tore's agent Nassim Touihri told Bild that they had met before to talk.
"They met in private. It is all settled and resolved -- with Toprak as well."
