The chairman of Istanbul powerhouse football club Galatasaray on Monday was rushed to the hospital for “urgent” surgery, said club officials.

Mustafa Cengiz was readmitted to the hospital for the operation after successful brain surgery earlier this month.

The 70-year-old businessman was discharged from the hospital last week after recuperating from the brain surgery.

This is a developing story. Updates will follow.
