Quaresma: Besiktas no longer want me

The Portuguese winger has been informed that he is not in the Turkish club's plans amid a dispute over the player's wages
Ricardo Quaresma looks to be on his way out of Besiktas after the club told him he was no longer welcome at the BJK Inonu Stadium.

The cash-strapped Turkish side have informed the winger that they have no intention of renewing his contract after the Portuguese international seemingly turned his back on an agreement to take a 570,000 wage cut.

"The coach and the board don't want me. I love Besiktas fans," Quaresma told Dogan News Agency.

The skilful winger joined the club for a reported €7.3 million deal from Inter in 2010, but has been involved in a series of bust-ups with fellow players and coaches during his spell.

Fikret Orman, Besiktas' club president explained the decision: "No player can call a meeting with the board or president. Besiktas is above everybody.

"Additionally, a meeting with Quaresma cannot even be considered.

"We'll discuss these topics at our meetings. At the moment a return is not possible for him."

Besiktas currently sit 11th in the Turkish Super Lig, having lost their last three matches.
