Bright Osayi-Samuel has become a huge fan favourite at Fenerbahce because he is a selfless and tireless worker.
He has played as the right back, left back, right wing-back, left wing-back, and a winger and practically done whatever was asked of him to let his team win.
Osayi-Bright is also playing a key role in Fenerbahce’s push for the Turkish league title this season.
Definitely Nigeria has captured a gem, one that will certainly help the team win many trophies in years to come.
