Beşiktaş star Atiba Hutchinson stands ahead of his 100th Süper Lig appearance for the Black Eagles.

The 33-year old Canadian international has thusfar made 99 league appearances and is currently in his 4th season at the club.

In those 99 appearances Atiba has only received 4 yellow and 1 red card, he has not been booked for 54 consecutive games. A remarkable feat for a defensive midfielder.

Atiba played an instrumental part in last season’s Championship victory and was rewarded with a contract extention until medio 2018. In recent weeks he has even worn the Captain’s armband on multiple occassions, including in the Champions League against Dynamo Kyiv, making him the first ever Canadian to captain a team in the UEFA Champions League. Will he wear the captain’s armband in his 100th league appearance tomorow against Kayserispor? It seems very likely.
