Red card: John Boye sent off in Kayseri Erciyesspor defeat

John Boye was sent off on Saturday as his Turkish Super Lig side’s struggles continued with a 2-4 loss at home to Genclerbirligi.

The Ghanaian has quickly metamorphosed from being a hero for Kayseri Erciyesspor fans two weeks ago when he scored a goal of the season contender to now the villain after receiving the red following two bookings within three minutes of each other barely six minutes into the second half.

The numerical disadvantage couldn’t have come at a worse time for Kayseri Erciyesspor who were already 0-2 down from the first half of the match day 23 tie at the Kadir Has Åžehir Stadı in Kayseri as they went on to lose for the second straight league game and four in the last 5.

It also means Boye’s side fail to take advantage of 15th placed Rizespor’s 2-2 draw at rock bottom, Balikesirspor and remain rooted to 16th and the last relegation place of Super Lig on a paltry 20 points from a possible 69.

Boye is now expected to be banned for up to three games for Erciyesspor who are desperate to stop licking goals and next travel to the lion’s den to take on the might of title chasing giants, Besiktas who currently have on their books, another Ghana defender, Daniel Opare on loan from Porto.

John Boye has featured in 15 (14 starts) of Kayseri’s Super Lig games of the 2014/15 season, scoring two goals and was away with Ghana at the 2015 Africa Cup of Nations in January and early February. Follow @thedonplato
