Watch: Burnley loanee Weghorst floors fan after flying kick on Besiktas teammate

Ugly scenes erupted in the Turkish top-flight late this evening


Footage of a chaotic incident involving on-loan Burnley striker Wout Weghorst has piqued widespread attentions online on Sunday night.

For those not aware, Weghorst is currently plying his trade in Turkey, on loan with Besiktas.

The Black Eagles were back in action late this evening, making the trip to Ankaragucu for a Super Lig clash.

When all was said and done, it was the visitors who emerged from proceedings triumphant, with former Tottenham and Everton star Dele Alli amongst the goals en route to a 3-2 final scoreline.

As alluded to above, though, it is not the action-packed 90 minutes which has proven the headline talking point on the back of the full-time whistle in Ankara.

This, instead, has come in the form of the chaos which followed.

An absolutely remarkable sequence was kicked into gear upon a fan of the evening’s defeated hosts making his way onto the Eryaman Stadium pitch.

From here, the supporter in question made a beeline for the centre circle, before, incredibly, directly a flying kick into the back of one of Besiktas’ stars.

In his efforts to flee the scene, the member of the Ankaragucu crowd was then pushed to the ground by a pair of players, including aforementioned Burnley loanee Wout Weghorst, sparking yet more issues amongst officials, members of staff and more.
