Dede, Mensah trade goals as Gyan watches Fenerbahce v Kayserispor from bench
The Ghanaian duo found the back of the net, with their national team captain looking on from the sidelines.
There were two Ghanaians on target when Fenerbahce hosted Kayserispor in the Turkish Super Lig on Saturday.
Deputy Ghana Captain Andre Ayew was on the score sheet for home side Fenerbahce but Black Stars midfielder Bernard Mensah’s goal carried more significance as it helped the visitors secure a stunning 3-2 win at Sukru Saracoglu Stadium.
The result has left the Anatolian Star third on the league table, nine places above The Yellow Canaries.
Fenerbahce were the first to find the back of the net in the matchday four fixture as summer signing Ayew beat his marker at the far post to head home Hasan Kaldirim’s cross in the 13th minute.
Mensah, however, levelled for the visitors in the 52nd minute before Algeria striker Islam Slimani netted to restore The Yellow Canaries’ lead.
A Martin Skrtel own goal drew parity for Kayserispor once again before Tjarron Chery sealed a dramatic win for the away side with a 69th minute strike.
The game was Ayew’s fourth for Fenerbahce since a loan transfer from English side Swansea City in July. The goal is his first for the new club.
Mensah, on loan from Spanish giants Atletico Madrid, has also made four appearances and scored once for Kayserispor this season.
Ghana captain Asamoah Gyan, meanwhile, was an unused substitute for The Anatolian Star.
