Outgoing UK Ambassador Moore chants for Beşiktaş
Outgoing United Kingdom Ambassador to Turkey Richard Moore once again expressed his support for defending Turkish Super League football club Beşiktaş, in a farewell video posted on his Twitter account on Dec. 12.
Moore shouted “Siyah [Black]” at the end of the video, referring to one half of the Istanbul club’s famous “Black/White” chant.
The outgoing ambassador is known to be a fan of the Black Eagles and previously draped the U.K. Embassy building in Ankara in the team’s colors to celebrate Beşiktaş’s 15th league title in May.
Moore has served three years as Britain’s top diplomat in Ankara.
“I am coming to the end of my Turkish adventure after spending seven years of my life in Turkey … Good luck, my beautiful Turkey. We will be back often to visit you,” he had said in the farewell video.
