Wow!! Besiktas Football Club, Turkey Sign Amokachi Twin Sons

Daniel-Amokachi

Former Nigeria international, Daniel Amokachi, has described himself as a proud father after his twin sons Nazim and Kalim Amokachi completed a move to join Turkish champions, Besiktas.

Although the financial details of the deal have not been made public, both players were pictured in Besiktas jersey in an official unveiling after they signed a one-year contract with their new club.

Amokachi, aside announcing the deal for his 20-year old sons on his Facebook page, also posted a short message on his twitter handle @FrenzziiiBull where he wrote Two sons – one proud father. Thanks to @JSHercules and @besiktas for giving us a chance. #beşiktaş #hercules

It is understood that the twins flew to Istanbul to undergo one-week trial with the U21 team of Besiktas in the end of July.

During the trial Nazim Amokachi and Kalim Amokachi impressed the club’s sport management and the boys were requested to stay for another week after which contracts were signed, JSHercules reported on its website.

Continually hoping to be like their father or perhaps surpass him, the attack playing minded twins had years ago also undergone trials at Everton, another club their father played for during his active days but they failed to get a deal.

Daniel Amokachi, from 1996 to 1999, played 77 matches for Besiktas in which he struck 19 goals.

During his time in Turkey, Amokachi popularly referred to as the Bull, was a cult figure among the fans winning hearts across the country and even among the supporters of other clubs, the JSHercules website said.

It is yet to be seen if his sons’ performances will follow such high pedestal even as their father has started carving a niche for himself in coaching, being one of the very few African coaches heading an European club.
