“He’s our everything” –Trabzonspor honour Nwakaeme with statue in Turkey
Trabzonspor, in a bid to appreciate Anthony Nwakaeme’s contributions to the club, have erected a statue in his honour in the Turkish city.
The monument was erected in Trabzonspor – the city where the 32-year-old striker’s club is based. Interestingly, the Nigerian has been at the club for only three seasons.
Adem Birsen who is the brain behind the image claimed the construction took less than six months while explaining the motive behind it.
“We wanted to make a bust of Nwakaeme, we wanted the very intelligent man to identify with Trabzon,” he said. “We made it with the cap of our legendary name Ahmet Suat Ozyazcı.
“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 Fenerbahce has Alex, we have Nwakaeme.
“We love him very much, he should continue to score, he is our everything.”
Nwakaeme has registered two goals and an assist in two league games this season.
