Onazi Ogenyi got his much awaited debut for Denizlispor on Sunday away against champions Galatasaray in the Super Lig.
Onazi, who joined Denizlispor after he was released by Trabzonspor this month, signed a one year-and-half deal to move to the Denizli Atatürk Stadium.
He was left out of the matchday squad to face Trabzonspor last Thursday, in what could have been his debut, but the Nigeria International was handed a starter’s spot on Sunday.
However, he probably did not have the sort of the impact he would have hoped for in his first game.
The midfielder was booked in the 29th minute, his side trailing 1-0 and it got worse after the break.
Former Chelsea and AS Monaco Forward Radamel Falcao struck to double Galatasaray’s lead in the 57th minute.
19 minutes into the second-half and Onazi was withdrawn, he played only 64 minutes.
Denizlispor eventually score, but the hosts held on for a 2-1 victory. Henry Onyekuru missed the game and Jesse Sekidika got a four-minute cameo.
The second change of the night for our team.
Ömer is off, Jesse is on. #GSvDNZ
