Demba Ba believes Kerim Frei should be awarded Man of the Match [divider]
Beşiktaş striker Demba Ba believes that Kerim Frei should have been awarded the Man of the Match award following the 2-0 win against Gençlerbirliği.
“We controlled the game from start to end but I thought Kerim was the game changer, he had a great game and was man of the match in my opinion,” Ba told Lig Tv after the game.
Beşiktaş scored both of their goals after Frei was brought on for Oğuzhan Özyakup on 63 minutes.
Frei won the free-kick that lead to the first goal and was involved in the second goal.
The 21-year-old completed 11 passes with a 100 percent accuracy and was awarded a 7.00 rating by Whoscored.
Frei was born in Feldkirch, Austria but was raised in Switzerland by his Turkish father and Moroccan mother.
The 20-year-old winger was first spotted by Swiss side Grasshoppers aged 13 and was snapped up by Fulham just three years later.
After rising through the youth ranks the Fulham starlet was given his Premier League debut on 10 December 2011, in an away match against Swansea City aged just 18.
Frei joined Beşiktaş on a €3.5 million move from Fulham last summer.
The Turkish international has scored four goals in all competitions this season.
