Sports Desk- A man who has been a football player in Turkey is driving a taxi in America these days. You must be surprised to know, but it is true. The name of this Turkey footballer is Hakan Sukur. Hakan Sukur is driving a taxi in America these days.
Hakan Sukur scored soccer’s fastest ever World Cup goal when he netted in less than 11 seconds for Turkey against South Korea in 2002. But rather than enjoying a comfortable retirement as a sporting hero, Sukur now drives an Uber in America, he told German paper Welt am Sonntag in an interview.
Between 1987 and 2008, Sukur played for the likes of Galatasaray in Turkey, as well as Italy’s Inter Milan and English side Blackburn Rovers. Sukur, who scored 51 goals in 112 appearances for his country, joined Erdogan’s Justice and Development Party (AKP) in 2011 but quit two years later due to a reported conflict of opinions. But these days he remains the headline of news channels.
