Dutch striker Robin van Persie is over the bust-up he had with his former club mate OguzhanOzyakup. Both stars clashed in the last Istanbul derby between Besiktas and Fenerbahce.

The striker goaded his friend while he celebrated the winning goal for Fenerbahce.

RVP slid his knees to the front of the 24-year old, screaming ecstatically. Ozyakup was angered by his friend’s gesture. He declared that their friendship was over after that game.

“I have a lot to say about the incidents on the field. But I won’t say them. Just one thing, I was very good friends with a certain player on the field. That changed today. Sometimes you see the real face of a footballer on the field,” Ozyakup was quoted o have said in anger.

As both players have been part of the Gunners’ setup, RVP said there were “no hard feelings” as what happens on the pitch was different from what happened outside of it.

“What happens on the pitch stays on the pitch, I have no problem with Ozyakup or anybody else. When I am on the field I will do what is necessary to win but off the pitch we have no problems,” he said.

In the return leg of the derby RVP played a mediocre game as it ended 1-1. Striker Vincent Aboubakar connected to a cross from winger Ricardo Quaresmato score the opener for the Black Eagles. Quaresma hit the framework in the second half as the team tried to double their lead.

Fenerbahce lost two players Martin Skrtel and Josef de Souza as they were sent off. Instead of Besiktas to seal the game off, a miscommunication allowed their opponents get the equalizer. The result means Beskitas’ lead would be reduced to just two points.
