The Frenchman says that the Eurasian nation's bid for the Games could hamper their desire to stage the European Championship, both of which will be held in 2020.UEFA president Michel Platini has indicated that he would not support Turkey's bid to host Euro 2020 if the country persists with its bid for the Olympic games.
Turkey is so far the only nation to launch a formal bid for the European Championship, but the three 'Celtic' nations - Wales, Scotland and Ireland - have expressed and interest in hosting.
Turkey is also bidding for Istanbul to host the Olympic Games the same year, and Platini has stated that he would only back the country's bid for Euro 2020 should they fail in their Olympics hosting attempt.
"If Turkey is given the Olympic Games they will not have the Euros," Platini affirmed at the FIFA congress in Budapest. "If they don't get the Olympics, and they still bid for the Euros, I will still vote for them. The two decisions will not be made at the same time.
"They can carry on bidding for both if they want - I'm not particularly happy about that, but it's their problem, not mine. But if they get the Games, they won't get the Euros.
"The can gain everything, or lose everything."
A final decision over who will host Euro 2020 is likely to be made at the end of 2013 or the beginning of 2014.
