Former Black Stars skipper Stephen Appiah honoured by Fenerbahçe
Stephen Appiah has been given a plaque in honour of his commitment and dedication during his two-and-a-half-year stint with Fenerbahçe SK.
The former Black Stars skipper joined the Turkish side in 2005 and left in 2008 after an extended knee-injury layoff and a contract dispute with the club.
The former Juventus ace and another former Fernabache star, Diego Lugano were presented with plaques before Fenerbahçe played their entertaining 1-1 draw with rivals Besiktas on Monday at the Şükrü Saracoğlu Stadium.
The pair were presented with framed Fernabache-themed plaques which had their images by a Board Member of the club Selahattin Baki.
“Like Steve Jobs said “Your work is going to fill a large part of your life, and the only way to be truly satisfied is to do what you believe is great work. And the only way to do great work is to love what you do,” Appiah wrote on Instagram.
”Though I may not have played there for long, the two and half seasons spent and played for Fenerbache has never gone unnoticed because man worked hard and the work was done with deep love and dedication.
“Last night, another honour was added to our collections by God’s grace. Once again i dedicate this to God, my family and you… Yes, you my dear fans around the world. Your support brought us very far. I’m grateful. En Buyuk Fener” (sic).”
Appiah went on to play for Bologna, Cesena and Vojvodina before calling time on his career on June 27, 2015.
