On-loan Manchester United flop Bebe is one of three players told to train away from the Besiktas first-team squad by coach Tayfur Havutcu after issues with their private lives.

Havutcu replaced former coach Carlos Carvalhal in April and has sought to make his mark on the team after a 2-0 loss to Istanbul rivals Galatasaray at the weekend.

Bebe, along with Sidnei and Julio Alves, has borne the brunt with a statement on the club's website insisting that the trio were excluded from squad training due to "a lack of discipline and issues with their personal lives".

The club have an important Super Liga Championship play-off fixture against Trabzonspor this weekend, but Bebe and company are unlikely to be involved.
