Opare admits he would ‘die for Besiktas’ following Liverpool win [divider]
Beşiktaş fullback Daniel Opare only signed on loan in January but he seems pretty intent on making his stay permanent as he revealed he is willing to die for the Black Eagles.
Opare was overcome with emotions after the Black Eagles sent Liverpool crashing out of the Europa League Round of 32 and told reporters after the game that he would do anything for the club.
“I really appreciated the fans today, I will do anything for the club, I will die, I will kill myself for Beşiktaş,” Opare said.
The Ghanian international is fast on track to becoming a fan favourite among the Beşiktaş faithful and his post-match comments will have gone down a treat.
The Ghanian international was brought in as a makeshift left-back to fill in for Ramon Motta who was suspended for the second-leg.
Opare is actually a right-back and was considered the weakest link going into the game but excelled against Liverpool.
The 24-year-old defended well, making two tackles, one interception and seven clearances.
Opare was also impressive going forwards, the fullback completed 81 passes at an 88 percent accuracy and caused Liverpool problems with his dribbling ability.
The Beşiktaş fullback made five successful dribbles and linked up well with Gökhan Töre in the final third.
