Rami’s contract was terminated two weeks ago by Marseille after skipping training.
Turkish football club Fenerbahce transferred Olympique Marseille’s French defender Adil Rami on Tuesday.
French defender Adil Rami has joined Fenerbahce following his sacking by Marseille. The Yellow Canaries announced on their website that the club has signed Rami on a one-year contract with the option to extend for a further year.
The 33-year-old’s contract with the Ligue 1 side was terminated two weeks ago for gross misconduct, after he reportedly skipped training to take part in a reality TV show.
Rami, who spent two years at Marseille following spells with Lille, Valencia, AC Milan and Sevilla, has been handed a one-year deal by Fenerbahce with the option of a further 12 months. In his Olympique Marseille spell, he managed to score three goals in 75 games.
“I’m very happy to be here,” he told his new club’s official website. “I have watched the derbies before, there is a real passion here.
“I’m going to start training now with my new team-mates. I’m going to try to find myself slowly, then I will prepare for the matches. I’m so proud to be here. I will do my best as a part of the Fenerbahce family.”
Rami has won 36 caps for France although he had a non-playing part of the squad that won the World Cup in Russia.
