Besiktas beat Galatasaray 1-0 in the Istanbul derby at the Vodafone Park stadium in the Super Lig on Sunday.
Liverpool loanee started for Besiktas keeping his second clean sheet of the season.
The 25-year-old rarely put a foot wrong over the course of the 90 minutes and the fans showed just how pleased they were with his display the final whistle.
Karius got a standing ovation and was called over by the supporters for the traditional ‘üçlü’ chant. Basically, what happens is, the home crowd pick a player who they feel has performed exceptionally well and call him over.
The player then leads a chant which involved the entire stadium going quite, followed by the player leading the fans like an orchestra conductor to the tune of ‘1 2 3’.
If you are confused here it is the Besiktas chant being led by Karius.
For everyone who spreading ‘fake news’ that Besiktas fans hate Loris Karius and that he is having a torrid time in Turkey…
