Van Persie Has Iconic Celebration Printed On Fenerbahce T-shirt After Row With Wife Of Besiktas Star
Robin Van Persie is receiving huge attention after he scored the crucial winner for Fenerbahce in their 1-0 victory over arch rivals Besiktas in the Istanbul derby.
And Fenerbahce has now released a special T-shirt to highlight Van Persie’s iconic celebration after all the outrage along the away following the derby clash.
Robin van Persie did his best to win the game for his side in the Istanbul derby between Besiktas and Fenerbahce.
RVP was the reason why Besiktas defender Dusko Tosic was sent-off after a minimal contact collision saw Van Persie fall down on the ground, as the referee showed the Serbia international a red-card.
Following the sending-off, Tosic had to be stopped and held-back by his team-mates after he advanced towards the Netherlands superstar.
If Robin’s role in the sending-off wasn’t enough – the former Arsenal skipper also scored a late goal to help Fenerbahce secure a 1-0 win over their bitter rivals and advance in the last eight of the Turkish Cup.
However, Dusko’s wife and popstar Jelena Karleusa wasn’t very pleased with the former Manchester United star’s behaviour as she lashed out at the 33-year-old.
Karleusa posted a strongly and foul worded message for the iconic talisman, defending her husband – she wrote, “R. van Persie is one stupid motherf**ker. Brake a leg asshole!”
The popstar is huge star in the Baltic, having sold millions of copies – while her husband has 19 caps for Serbia and has played in the Premier League for QPR.
Later she had deleted the post after her husband requested her to do so. She came up with another tweet, stating that she hates ‘dirty players’.
And now in response to Fenerbahce’s customised T-shirt she took a dig at the club by posting her own top showing the head-butting incident that got her husband sent off.
In her T-shirt, Tosic is portrayed as a warrior, standing tall in front of Van Persie, who is shown falling down on the pitch. She explained the design as the ‘strength of Besiktas’ – hinting that her husband should have actually headbutted him.
Van Persie celebrated his goal by sliding in front of his former Arsenal teammate Oguzhan Ozyakup.
After the match, Ozyakup revealed that his friendship with Van Persie was over.
