Nigerian striker, Anthony Nwakaeme has been honoured with a huge statue in Turkey for his impressive contributions at Super Lig side Trabzonspor.

The 32-year-old, who joined the Turkish club from Hapoel Be’er Sheva in 2018, has made over 90 appearances for club, with over 20 goals to his name.

Nigerian football journalist Oluwashina Okeleji (@oluwashina) shared the news on his social media platform adding that the image was erected in Trabzon by Adem Birsen.

Speaking about the statue, Adem Birsen said, ” We wanted to make a bust of Nwakaeme, we wanted the very intelligent man to identify with Trabzon.

We made it with the cap of our legendary name Ahmet Suat Özyazc?. It was a long construction process in 5-6 months. We had it done with a special sculptor.

We love and admire him very much. If Fenerbahçe has Alex, we have Nwakaeme. We love him very much, he should continue to score, he is our everything.”
