Shola Ameobi Makes His Turkish Debut

7 years ago

Shola Ameobi has seen his first piece of competitive action in Turkey, making his debut for Gaziantep away at Kayserispor.

The rather bizarre move to the Turkish second tier has seen Shola’s first start delayed due to the red card he picked up at the end of last season, when he was sent off against Liverpool.

The standard of football and the attendances might be rubbish but it certainly looks competitive.

Shola Ameobi only made his mark in this first match on Turkish soil by having the distinction of being the first of twelve players to be booked in the match, including seven from his team.

The match finished goalless and Gaziantep now have two points from their first two matches, having drawn their opening game against Boluspor 1-1.
