West Brom coach Sam Allardyce, who wanted Diagne from Galatasaray, sent an observer to the Beşiktaş derby that was played the previous evening … While Beşiktaş defeated its arch-rival 2-0, the star of the field was Josef who scored the first goal to unlock the match. At the same time, it was learned that the British team’s observer, who also wanted Okay Yokuşlu from Celta, gave the highest grade to Josef in the report. West Brom, who wanted Josef while playing in F. Garden in 2017, made the claim that he could make an offer to the Brazilian player. Allardyce also wanted Josef to the London team while running C. Palace in the 2016 season.
Josef De Souza, who broke Galatasray’s resistance with the goal he scored in the derby, became the player who met the ball the most in Beşiktaş. The Brazilian star player, who met 103 times on the ball and achieved 91.3 percent pass rate, won 9 out of 10 duo competitions, grabbed 3 balls, and gave 3 intermediate passes.
