BESIKTAS chiefs have sworn to avenge one of the most humiliating defeats in their history after being drawn to face Liverpool in the Europa League.

The Reds thumped the Turkish side 8-0 the last time the two sides met, and director Ahmet Nur Cebi is adamant Besiktas will make amends in the last 32 tie in February.

“Liverpool should be more concerned about us than we are about them,” he said. “We will knock Liverpool out. There is an account which wasn’t settled in England from previous years – that 8-0 defeat. We’ll settle the account now.”

Besiktas have already beaten Tottenham in the Europa League this season and lost to Arsenal in the Champions League play-offs.
