Super Eagles star to work with Mourinho at Fenerbahce


Jose Mourinho’s official confirmation as the new manager of Fenerbahce, will see him work with Super Eagles’ defender, Bright Osayi-Samuel.

Osayi-Samuel was in the headlines last season, after he punched a pitch-invading fan during a Turkish Super Lig fixture against Trabzonspor.

Fenerbahce won the game 3-2, but their celebrations were marred by ugly scenes at the end of the game.

The Nigerian international, who joined Fenerbahce in 2021, reacted quickly, landing a punch on the intruder.

Osayi-Samuel’s seeming passionate style will be appreciated by Mourinho, who appreciates committed players.

Fenerbahce suffered only one defeat in the league last season, but six draws proved to be costly in the title race, as Galatasaray were crowned champions.
