All the squad members involved were said to be born in 2003.

And they alleged hired the 'call girls' during their stay on the party island, with the ladies, passing the night in their rooms.

However, the coaches found out what transpired the following morning, when they invited the call girls for breakfast.

The German newspaper Bild further claimed that some parents and guardians of some players were also present at the hotel and were living witness as the call girls were invited for breakfast.

One of the supposed parents was quoted saying: "We were all really shocked. That doesn't fit with the image of football. That's undisciplined."

But Besiktas have dismissed the claims according to a report by Turkish news agency Duhuliye .

"We also heard about this 'sexx scandal' today.

"However, the case is not as it is written in the media. Our Under-16 team were in Rhodes 40 days ago.

"One of the players invited his girlfriend to the hotel but the coaches realised and reacted immediately.

"This player has been left out of the squad. The case is not as big as it has been exaggerated,” the statement read in part.
