In October 2016, following a horrific start of the campaign for Antalyaspor, Samuel Eto’o made a €100,000 with a fan, named in the Turkish press as Mehmet Akdeniz, that Antalyaspor would finish in the top 10 this season.
On Friday, Antalyaspor thumped Gaziantepspor 4-1 in their final Super Lig match of the campaign.
With the win, the team secured a historic fifth place finish, the first in the club’s history.
Ivorian teenager Jean Drole netted a brace in only his second appearance of the campaign, whilst Eto’o and Zeki Yildirim completed the rout, Serkan Bakan scored the consolation goal for the Falcons.
Mehmet Akdeniz wouldn’t be receiving any €100,000 from Samuel Eto’o after all!
