Shirt numbers bigger than crowds as Shola Ameobi back in relegation zone

6 years ago

The bizarre Shola Ameobi experiment continues in Turkey.

Shola and his Gaziantep BB teammates find themselves back in the relegation zone after Manisaspor who were second bottom, put their relegation rivals in that same spot after beating them 2-0 away.

With only one league win in three months in the Turkish second tier, it isn’t exactly living the dream for the former Newcastle striker.

Watching the video footage of this latest defeat below, you will see that there appears as much interest in the Turkish second division over in Turkey, as there is in Newcastle.

In fact some of the bizarre squad numbers the players have chosen appear to be bigger than the number of spectators you can see.

Involved in Sunday’s match you had three of Shola’s teammates wearing numbers 78, 89 and 90 respectively.

Though visiting goalkeeper Bayram Olgun took the honours with No.99.

In the video footage you will also see Shola Ameobi have a great chance to level at one down but he hits a feeble left foot shot.
