Fernabache honours cult-hero Stephen Appiah

By on

Former Black Stars skipper Stephen Appiah has been presented with a plaque in honour of his commitment and dedication during a memorable two-and-a-half-year stint with former club Fernabache.

Appiah, 37, and another former Fernabache star Diego Lugano were presented with plaques before Fernabache played out an entertaining 1-1 draw with rivals Besiktas on Monday.

The pair were presented with framed Fernabache-themed plaques which had their images by a Board Member of the club Selahattin Baki.

Appiah received massive cheers from a packed ?ükrü Saraco?lu Stadium as he departed pitchside after collecting his award.

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.” Though i may not have played there for long, the two and half seasons i spent and played for Fenerbache has never gone un noticed 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 @fenerbahce @diegolugano @larryappiah__ #greatclub #talklessdomore #madlove #chokormanian #stepapplifestyle

Appiah who spent only two and a half seasons at Fernabache during his playing career later in a post on Instagram said he believes he won over fans of the club and his status in Istanbul through his positive work ethic during his stint in Istanbul.

He posted: “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.” Though i may not have played there for long, the two and half seasons i 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 joined Fenerbache in 2005 and left in 2008 after an extended knee-injury layoff and a contract dispute with the club.

He went on to play for Bologna, Cesena and Vojvodina before calling time on his career on June 27, 2015.
