In a bid to appreciate his contributions to the Black Sea Storm, the Nigeria international has been honoured with a statue in the Turkish city.
Although Anthony Nwakaeme has represented Trabzonspor for only three seasons, the Nigeria international has been honoured with a statue in Turkey.
The monument was erected in Trabzonspor – the city where the 32-year-old striker’s club is based.
It depicts Nwakeme – in a Trabzonspor jersey – trying to kick a ball, with arms outstretched – although with a cap of club legend Ahmet Suat Ozyazci.
“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.”
