I never comment and just read around here but I’m calling this out for BS. It was 7 years ago and he was 19. The fact so many Turks are interested in Everton now speaks volumes of the esteem he’s held in by Beşiktaş fans - who he played for for a lot longer than Eintracht.
He may well be a dud, but this claim is utter bullshit. According to Beşiktaş fans nobody worked harder.
"so many Turks" is a bunch of fake twitter bots that were deployed by Besiktas to generate excitement among the Everton fanbase for the proposed transfer.
When you consider the money at stake and the very low cost these days of deploying fake accounts on social media, it's almost more surprising that this kind of tactic hasn't been adopted sooner.
What do you reckon @Ridge
, you with me on this one?
