Anthony Nwakaeme: Statue erected for Nigerian footballer in Turkey


Nigerian footballer, Anthony Nwakaeme, has gotten a statue erected for him in Turkey, and we can tell he must have been doing well in the country.

32-year-old Anthony Nwakaeme was honoured with a huge statue 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 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.”
