I really love the way they go on about how much of a nice bloke he is, check this out.
While Emre, who coincidentally snubbed Everton to join Newcastle for 3.8 million pounds ($7.5 million) in July 2005, has a reputation for being mild-mannered and likeable off the pitch, he is no stranger to controversy on it.
' Last month, he was involved in a touchline row with Wally Downes, the Reading coach, during Newcastle's 3-2 win at St James' Park. Glenn Roeder, the Newcastle manager, said that Emre had been �upset� by something Downes had said to him, although Steve Coppell, the Reading manager, offered a different take on the matter, claiming that the Turkey midfield player had called Downes �puttana,� the Italian word for whore.
�Wally has been reported as saying �What the f****** hell's going on?' That's all he said,� Coppell said. �There was no personal slur, there was nothing, yet for whatever reason their player [Emre] was angry about it.
�He swore at our people, in Italian for some reason, not knowing our goalkeeping coach is Italian.�
In February last year, Emre was given a six-match international ban -- later reduced to four games on appeal -- and fined 15,000 Swiss francs (about $12,300) for his part in the post-match brawl that blighted Turkey's 2006 World Cup qualifying match against Switzerland the previous November. '
Lets just call a spade a spade, he's a jumped up dirty little racist scumbag.
