DID YOU KNOW ?

Nihat Kahveci joined the first team at Besiktas in the 1997-98 season when he was just 17, at the time John Toshack was the coach.

In the final match of Euro 2008 Group A, Nihat scored twice in a pivotal match against the Czech Republic. Later on Nihat was ruled out of Turkey's semi-final with Germany due to a thigh injury.

On April 25, 2011, in a match against Konyaspor which turned out to be his last game, Nihat and the new Besiktas favourite Ricardo Quaresma had quarrel on the pitch. Nihat was upset at Quaresma for failing to pass the ball and the altercation was broken up by team mates.
