Atiba ‘delighted’ to be at the top of the table [divider]
Beşiktaş midfielder Atiba Hutchinson revealed that he is delighted to be back at the top of the table.
The Black Eagles beat Bursaspor 3-2 at the Atatürk Olympic stadium to move back into 1st place with 47 points after 20 games.
“I am delighted that we continue to win in the Super League and remain at the top of the table. We were definitely the better side in this match and deserved to win,” Hutchinson was quoted as saying by the official Beşiktaş website.
Hutchinson also underlined that he was pleased to get through the game without aggregating his injury.
“I did my best out there today, but I was a bit hesitant because of my recent injury,” he added.
Hutchinson is currently involved in contract talks over extending his current deal at the club.
The Canadian international is free to enter direct talks with other clubs as his contract is set to run out at the end of the season.
The 31-year-old was recently voted Canadian Men’s Player of the Year for a third time.
Hutchinson has made a total of 27 appearances for the Black Eagles in all competitions this season.
