Kevin-Prince Boateng might have only been at Besiktas for less than a month but he is already shaping up to be a crowd favourite.
Boateng scored on his debut over the weekend to the Turkish giants, the second of their three goals against Gaziantep over the weekend.
He celebrated with a couple of energetic twirls before being joined by his teammates.
His goal was sandwiched between goals by Burak Yilmaz and Jeremie Lens as Besiktas ran out 3-0 winners.
After the game, Boateng led the home fans and the rest of the team in the massive celebrations.
First approaching the fans, Boateng, like a conductor, pressed his finger to his lips to quieten the already-cheering fans before spinning his arms around three times.
The fans responded in earnest, giving a huge roar at the end of each twirl.
They then started chanting, with the players who were linked – arms over necks – bouncing along with them.
It marked a great start to life in Turkey for Boateng, who moved to Besiktas on loan from Fiorentina in January.
Check out the celebrations below:
Canerin tokatı, Boateng'in gülümsemesi ve ardından da Boateng'in o muhteşem üçlüsü. Sergen Hocam da arkada takımın ve taraftarını sevincini izliyor. Muhteşem video muhteşem.

Boateng’s golden debut
With the match level at 0-0 after 45 minutes, Boateng was brought on in the 46th minute for Adam Ljaijic.
Besiktas took the lead six minutes later, from a Burak Yilmaz penalty.
Boateng got his goal in the 70th minute, from a move he started in midfield.
Picking up the ball in front of the opposition box, Boateng switched play to the right hand side and made his way into the box.
His run was unchecked and he was on hand to tuck home the pinpoint ball across the box.
Boateng capped off the goal with an energetic celebration – one and a half flips – as his teammates rushed to join him as he soaked in the cheers of the home fans.
Besiktas found a third goal in stoppage time from substitute Jeremie Lens.
The result keeps them in seventh place, three points from the top four.
