Tomas Sivok bids farewell to Beşiktaş

Updated: May 30, 2015

Tomas Sivok, who wore the Beşiktaş uniform for a total of 7 years, played his final match for Beşiktaş yesterday against Gençlerbirliği. A ceremony was organized for the captain.

Mete Vardar on Tomas Sivok:

“Sivok featured in a total of 198 matches (156 in the league) for us and became the foreigner that played the most matches in Beşiktaş’ history. We wanted to award him for this. He was actually ready for this award a couple of matches ago, but we wanted to wait until the end of the season. Our captain gave his all for 7 years and helped out a lot. He’s also our only player that has won a championship in the past. We’re experiencing this pride and joy together.”

Tomas Sivok:

“Beşiktaş was my home, my family. I met a lot of nice people. While I was playing for this club, I got married and had 2 kids. We experienced big joy all together. I’m always going to see Beşiktaş as my home. I’m feeling new experiences and excitement. I’m proud to be a part of this family. There’s always a start and end in football. We couldn’t agree on a contract, but I’m not mad towards anybody. We’re leaving with nice emotions. Players will come and players will go. Some terms need to come to an end. Maybe Milosevic will take over. It brings happiness to leave this club like this. I’m looking forward to the future. I need to experience new things. I need to meet new people at a new club. I’m planning on going to a team where I can play consistently. The easy option would’ve been to continue here for me. If I was to continue, I was going to lose this feeling and excitement. I want to go to a place where I will experience new feelings once again and to where I can play 3-4 more years of top quality football. The Beşiktaş page is closing. After this, I hope that I will come up against Beşiktaş with my new club and experience that atmosphere again, at least as an opponent. It was a joy to experience that amazing atmosphere at the İnönü Stadium. I’ve been taking coaching courses at my country for a while now. If I get my coaching documents, I don’t know if I will become a coach. However, I want to be involved in football in the future. If the conditions are appropriate, I would like to come back to Beşiktaş. Beşiktaş is my family.”
