Antalyaspor may currently be without a manager but they do have Samuel Eto’o. The Cameroon international has assumed an unofficial player-manager role and guided his side to a 3-2 win over Mersin on the weekend.
The Scorpions actually got off to a terrible start. Mersin scored twice within the opening 45 minutes to go into the half-time break with a two goal lead.
Mbilla got Antalyaspor back into the game just a few minutes after half-time and former Chelsea man Eto’o netted the equaliser for his 13th goal of the season making him the top goalscorer in the league.
Lokman Gör wrapped up a memorable comeback for the Scorpions with his last minute goal to end their six goal winless streak.
