I’ve announced myself to Turkish league, Nwakaeme says after scoring brace

Super Eagles striker Anthony Nwakaeme says he’s not yet in his best form despite scoring two goals for Trabzonspor on Saturday.

The striker grabbed a brace and provided an assist as Trabzonspor thrashed Galatasaray 4-0.

Nwakaeme moved to the Turkish league from Hapoel Beer Sheva during the summer transfer window.

“There is definitely much more to come from me,” he told TheCable after his first Turkish Super Lig start for Trabzonspor.

“It was a good way to announce myself to the Super Lig. I’ve still got to prove myself.

“I need to show the manager what I can do and try not to take my foot off the gas, pressing for a place in this team.

“It’s a top football club with top players, who come in to compete and do their best every day. That’s been no different so far [in training].

“I just need to keep working hard and hopefully I can get into my full stride this season and try to do the best for the football club.”
