Tolgay Arslan played against Liverpool with a broken hand [divider]
Tolgay Arslan revealed that he scored the goal that took the Europa League Round of 32 second-leg game between Beşiktaş and Liverpool into extra time with a broken hand.
Beşiktaş secured a place in the Last 16 after beating Liverpool 5-4 on penalties.
Arslan underlined that the reason he has struggled for regular playing time since joining from HSV in the winter is due to having a broken hand.
“I am not 100 percent yet, I broke my right hand which is why it is bandaged up and it is tough playing without a hand, especially in defensive situations,” Arslan told Fanatik.
“Hopefully I will remove my bandages after the Sivasspor game.”
Beşiktaş take on Sivasspor on the road this week. The Black Eagles are currently in second place on 48 points.
The details of his injury are unknown but Arslan signed for Beşiktaş with a bandage wrapped around his hand.
Arslan joined Beşiktaş from HSV Hamburg for just €400,000 over the winter transfer window.
The 24-year-old has four appearances for the Eagles in all competitions this season.
