Gökhan Töre in race against time to recover before Liverpool game [divider]
Beşiktaş winger Gökhan Töre did not start against Eskişehirspor in the Süper Lig on Sunday and now faces a race against time to fully recover before the Liverpool match according to team doctor Ertuğrul Karanlık.
The Black Eagles lost 1-0 against EsEs at the Atatürk stadium. Beşiktaş were also defeated 1-0 by Liverpool at Anfield on Thursday 19 February in the Europa League Round of 32 first-leg.
“He picked up a knock to his left ankle in the Liverpool game, he does not have a lot of time to recover but we are doing everything we can to get him ready in time for the Liverpool game,” Karanlık told the official Beşiktaş website.
“He missed training today but we will do everything possible to get him ready for Thursday.”
The 23-year-old is currently in the best form of his career and broke his personal record for goals scored and assists provided following the 3-2 win over Bursaspor last week.
The explosive winger has seven goals and 10 assists in all competitions for the Black Eagles this season.
The Turkish international joined the Black Eagles from Kazan for £4 million this summer and has four-years left on his contract.
Beşiktaş manager Slaven Bilic could also be without prolific striker Demba Ba for the return leg against Liverpool on Thursday 26 February due to injury.
