Kevin-Prince Boateng has labelled Besiktas’ 2-1 win over Ankaragucu as the “best gift” on the occasion of his 33rd birthday.
The Ghana international – on loan from Fiorentina, made his fifth straight appearance for the Black Eagles, with Burak Yilmaz and Adem Ljajic scoring the goals.
Boateng played for 66 minutes and was replaced by Abdoulay Diaby, but could not hide his joy at the result on his birthday.
“Intense match and important team win,” the former Barcelona man said in a Twitter post.
“The best gift I could have received today. Let’s go.”
Boateng’s birthday is on the same day as Ghana’s independence, the country also celebrating 63 years of freedom from British rule.
He will have a taste of a derby in Istanbul next when Besiktas travel less than 10 kilometres to the Turk Telekom Stadium to face Galatasaray on March 15.
