Besiktas new boy Domagoj Vida has called on Juventus striker Mario Mandzukic to join him in Turkey.
Vida and Mandzukic are international teammates for Croatia, and the defender singled out the 30-year-old as someone he wanted to play with at Besiktas, having recently arrived from Dynamo Kiev.
“I’m not on social media, but some of my friends have published my ‘Come to Besiktas’ video,” he said at a Press conference.
“Perhaps I’ll say ‘Come to Besiktas’ to Mandzukic as well!”
‘Come to Besiktas’ started as a fan campaign on social media, consisting of supporters flooding the accounts of players they wanted with messages asking them to join the club.
It quickly went viral as the Istanbul giants parodied the campaign when announcing several of their signings last summer.
