Besiktas Fans Have Been Trolling Liverpool’s Social Media Channels All Day

Besiktas Fans Have Been Trolling Liverpool’s Social Media Channels All Day

Liverpool attempted to throwback to one of their famous European nights on social media – but probably regretted it quite quickly after Besiktas supporters flooded them with abuse.

The night in question was ten years ago today, and Besiktas were the Reds’ opponents in a Champions League groups stage match at Anfield, with Rafa Benitez’s side setting a European record 8-0 victory.

It’s obviously still an evening remembered with some affection by Liverpool’s fanbase, but a game not held in the same regard came in February 2015, when the Turkish giants saw off Liverpool in the Europa League last-32.

Besiktas won that tie on penalties after a 1-1 draw on aggregate, and they decided to remind their old foes of the conquest throughout today:

To be fair, whoever posted the original tweet from Liverpool’s account probably wasn’t expecting an influx of stick from what seems like every Besiktas fan on social media.

Who knows – maybe the two teams will meet in Europe at some point this season too!
