Nigerian tricenarian, Anthony Nwakaeme, doesn’t appear to be slowing down as he added two more goal contributions against Konyaspor to further burgeon his tally for the season.
The 31-year-old winger opened the scoring in the 21st minute before providing an assist to Flavio for the second, 11 minutes into the second half.
Four minutes later, The Black Sea Storm were cruising by a comfortable 3-0 advantage scored by Djaniny before the visitors netted a consolation two minutes from full time to gloss over the scoreline.
The goal was Nwakaeme’s 5th of the season and his 3rd assist of the campaign, marking the first time he would directly contribute to a goal in consecutive matches this season having laid an assist in their previous game.
The aging player who turns 32 by March is still proving to be an important player for the young team as his side have failed to win in all 4 of the games he has not featured.
Trabzonspor now sit 7th in the Turkish Super League, 3 points from 4th place Galatasaray, a remarkable comeback having started the season with 1 win in their first 8 games.
They next face Genclerbirligi on January 23.
