Ghana International, Joseph Attamah Larweh’s parent club, Istanbul Basaksehir on Sunday made history as they clinch the Turkish Superlig for the first time.
The defender was not in the thick of the action on Sunday as he is on loan at fellow Turkish side Fatih Karagümrük S.K.
A 1-0 victory over Kayserispor ensured Basaksehir who were formed in 1990 have inked their name in Turkish Superlig history book.
Istanbul Basaksehir won the Turkish title for the first time on Sunday, ending the dominance of the city’s big three clubs Fenerbahce, Galatasaray and Besiktas.
Basaksehir, formerly the Istanbul municipality team established in 1990, captured the title following a 1-0 win over Kayserispor. Second-placed Trabzonspor were beaten 4-3 by Konyaspor.
Between them, Fenerbahce, Galatasaray and Besiktas have won the Super Lig title 54 times but they were unable to compete on this occasion.
The club possess a number of familiar names who have played in the Premier League, including Gaël Clichy, Robinho, Martin Skrtel and Demba Ba. It was Clichy who created the winning goal with a fine run down the left, before pulling it back for Mahmut Tekdemir to slot into the corner.
There was some further drama on the night as the lights went out in the stadium with around a quarter of the match left to play. Luckily, power was restored and the match was completed, allowing the celebration to begin.
Basaksehir, who became only the sixth club to win the Super Lig title since its inception in 1959, top the standings with 69 points, seven ahead of Trabzonspor with one round left.
The campaign is not over for the newly-crown Turkish champions, as they have one league game remaining, in addition to the Europa League.
They currently have a one-goal lead from their first leg against FC Copenhagen and could face Manchester United in the next round if both progress.
