Shola Ameobi’s (winless) Turkish adventure continues

7 years ago

The Shola Ameobi (winless) Turkish adventure continues with the Geordie striker and his teammates stuffed yet again at the weekend.

Sunday saw Shola and Gaziantep go down 5-2 to Karsiyaka, leaving them in the relegation zone and without a league win so far this season.

They were two down within ten minutes and then had defender Deumi sent off, before going 5-1 down and scoring in injury time to make the score a little more respectable.

Quite why the second tier of Turkish football attracted the older Ameobi brother is baffling, unless it was simply the only offer on the table?

Playing in front of a handful of spectators at such a low standard and failing to make any real impression, must raise the question of whether this shows just how desperate Newcastle and Alan Pardew had become, that they were still relying on Shola Ameobi at the end of last season.
