José Ernesto Sosa has issued a public statement via his Twitter account to clarify the reasoning behind his desire to leave Beşiktaş this summer.

Sosa cites as reason that his family no longer feels safe in Istanbul, the recent bombing at the airport only amplified that feeling of insecurity. His wife no longer wants to live in Turkey with their baby twin daughters and Sosa is not willing to play his football far away from his family. He thanks the club for two amazing years and makes it clear that his desire to leave has nothing to do with money (as was rumoured in the press).
