Alfred Sankoh, who has been on the sidelined for two months was back on the pitch to support his side on Sunday as Denizlispor, the Turkish League One side thrashed Elazigspor 3-0 away from home.

“I started today, we won three nil and it was all good to be back on the pitch,” he told this medium.

Sankoh, 28, who suffered a broken right arm in October, was deployed in his usual position in defensive midfield.

Goals from Alperen Babacan 34′, Ziya Alkurt 61 and Yasin Ozan in the 89′ completed the big win for the Denzl-based club.

The former Balıkesirspor player was substituted in the 80th minutes and club skipper Veli Acar was introduced in his place.

Sankoh signed from Balıkesirspor as a free agent on a one-year deal and has settled straight in at Denizli, already featuring seven times for the club.

The former Şanlıurfaspor midfielder is a key player for Denizlispor this season.
