A second half hat-trick from former Chelsea striker Loic Remy sealed all three points for Rizespor.

"Despite opening my scoring account, this is not what we expected.The plan is to score and help the team at every time. It would have been great to finish the game with a win but unfortunately we couldn't. We move on to the next one, hopefully we win that one," he posted on twitter.


Paintsil lasted for 46 minutes as well as his compatriot Godfred Donsah who featured for Rizespor.
