Late Isaac Promise Respected By Turkish Club

Turkish club, Antalyaspor Kulübü paid their last respect to their late servant in the Turkish Super Lig on Friday.

The 'Scorpions' were stunned by the news of the sudden death of their former player over the week when Nigeria forward, Isaac Promise lost his life at the age of 31 due to cardiac arrest in the United State of America.

Antalyaspor transmitted their special tribute to the Olympic silver medalist through a customized banner when they travelled to the Şükrü Saracoğlu Stadium for a league match with Fenerbahçe,

Before kick-off, the away team offered an emotional salute to Promise with inscription ''Rest in Peace Isaac''.

It didn't end there as the Former Flying Eagles skipper was also remembered by the game's lone goal scorer Ufuk Akyol when he deliberately held-up Isaac Promise's favourite Jersey number '20'.
Isaac Promise played in Turkey for almost 13 years and was in the colours of Antalyaspor from 2012 to 2014 and was able to shake the net 11 times in 48 appearances.
