Turkish giant Beşiktaş elected yesterday Ahmet Nur Çebi as its 34th president after former President Fikret Orman resigned on Sept. 24.

Ahmet Nur Çebi was elected the 34th chairman of Turkey's Beşiktaş sports club on Sunday.

Çebi received more votes than other two candidates Serdal Adalı and Hürser Tekinoktay by winning 5,009 of the 8,529 valid votes cast during the club's general meeting at BJK Akatlar Sport Dome in Istanbul.

Other candidates Adalı received 2,983 votes while Hürser Tekinoktay won 537 votes.

Last month, Fikret Orman decided to step down, claiming responsibility for poor results this season. He added that "there is a need for fresh blood in the club."

Beşiktaş continued their poor performance in the league after drawing goalless with Ankaragücü on Saturday. The Black Eagles with 9 points are currently one point away from the relegation zone.

At home, Beşiktaş will face Portugal's Braga in UEFA Europa League group match on Thursday and will play against Galatasaray in Istanbul derby on Sunday.
