Óscar Córdova, former Colombian goalkeeper who played and shone in Boca Juniors and in the Besiktas, revealed that the ‘Octopus’ was from the beginning in the plans of the Turkish team, and not the German Loris Karius.
“Before they can sign Karius, Besiktas had in their sights David Ospina, Pedro Gallese and some other goalkeeper that I don’t remember at this time,” said Córdova, stating that the arrival of the national goalkeeper in Europe could have been possible.
