Ghana forward Kevin-Prince Boateng has been excluded from Besiktas match-day squad against Denizlispor due to last week's incident.

Boateng drew the ire of the Black Eagles faithful during last weekend's 2-1 home loss against Antalyaspor.

The 33-year-old was videoed throwing his shirt to the ground after he was replaced with Umut Nayir in the 65th minute.

He quickly took to social media to issue an apology to the club in the wake of the match but clarified that his actions were misinterpreted as he did not mean to disrespect the Black and White shirt.

However, coach Sergen Yalç?n deemed it fit not to include the Ghana international in his matchday squad for Saturday's encounter against Denizlispor despite injury robbing him of some of his key players for the game.

Ersin, Utku, Roco, Ruiz, Umut, Güven, Boyd, Erdo?an, Atiba, Elneny, Burak, N'Koudou, Necip, Adem Ljajic, Lens, R?dvan, Kartal, Gökhan Gönül, Caner Erkin and Diaby.

Players such as Damagoj Vida, Douglas and Dorukhan Toköz will be missing the match through injuries.

Boateng joined the club on loan from Italian outfit Fiorentina with an option to purchase at the end of the season.

He has netted two goals in seven games.
