Lagos - Former Super Eagles assistant coach Daniel Amokachi’s two sons will train with Turkish club Besiktas this week.

Kalim and Nazim who obviously have striking resemblance with their father, will return to join Amokachi in Finland after their training.

“My dear sons are training this week at ?#‎Besiktas in Turkey. Back here in ?#‎Oulu, ?#‎Finland and ?#‎Hercules next week. God is in control.” He wrote on his Facebook page.

Amokachi had played for Besiktas in his active days.

Earlier in the year, News24 reported that Amokachi, who signed a one year deal with Finnish lower division club JS Hercules, is one of black coaches handling European clubs.

As a player he was a striker from 1989 until 2005, starting his career with Ranchers Bees before earning notability by playing outside his native country with Premier League side Everton, as well as Club Brugge and Besiktas before initially finishing his career in the United States with Major League Soccer club Colorado Rapids.

He returned to Nigeria in 2005 to briefly play for Nasarawa United, who he went on to manage before moving on to Enyimba. He had his second spell as assistant manager of Nigeria after that
