Nigerian midfielder happy playing alongside Ozil

Nigerian midfielder Bright Osayi-Samuel is relishing the rare chance he now has to play alongside world-acclaimed superstars like Mesut Ozil.

Having previously played for Blackpool and QPR in the lower ranks of English football Osayi-Samuel has never enjoyed the luxury of playing alongside internationally acclaimed super stars like Ozil

Osayi-Samuel was born in Okija, Nigeria, then moved with his family to Spain before emigrating to England when he was ten years old.

The youngster said: “Mesut Özil is a player who also played in Real Madrid. When I heard that he was coming, my desire to transfer here increased even more.

“I am a young footballer and I learn a lot from Mesut Özil in terms of self-improvement. It was the best season in my career in the last 2 years.

“There are no limits for me. I believe that if I work hard and improve my weak points, I can rise to the top and become one of the best wingers in the world.”

Interestingly also, Ozil has a Nigerian idol in Austin Okocha and he even publicly stated that he is happy he is now playing for one of the clubs the football legend showed his football artistry.
