Önder Susam


Last quote by Önder Susam

I vaguely recall hearing about my hometown's team Bursaspor having three players with the first name Sedat and, despite having different surnames, they were called 'Big Sedat', Little Sedat' and, strangely, Sedat 3. Even after the first two Sedats left the club, Sedat 3 was called Sedat 3 (real name Sedat Özden) and in an interview (in Turkish) he mentions not being able to convince people that he actually has a real surname and having to introduce himself as Sedat Üç (3).feedback

The most recent quote attributed to Önder Susam came from an article called Are there any footballers with identical names at the same club?: “I remember the dark ages of Turkish football when players with the same first name were classified as 'Küçük' (small/young) and 'Büyük' (big/old). Emre Belözoğlu was once called Küçük Emre as he was younger than the defender Emre Aşık. In the nineties this trend started to disappear as players' surnames were used more often (and names were printed on shirts) but I remember commentators calling Hakan Şükür 'Büyük Hakan' (Hakan the old) and Hakan Ünsal 'Küçük Hakan.”.
