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.

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.”
