WATCH: Osayi-Samuel shows off LeBron James-like skills during Fenerbahce training

Super Eagles defender Bright Osayi-Samuel was pictured showing off his basketball skills during a training session at Fenerbahce, Soccernet reports.

Osayi-Samuel is currently having a solid campaign with Fenerbahce. The 25-year-old defender has made eight appearances for the former Super Lig champions and has one goal and three assists to his name.

The Super Eagles defender clearly seems to be having a better campaign than last season when he made 38 appearances across all competitions.

The Okija-born defender now seems to be an important member of the team despite talks linking him with an exit last summer.

Fenerbahce play Nordsjaelland in the Europa Conference League on Thursday. Ahead of the fixture, Osayi-Samuel was pictured showing his basketball skills just before joining the training session. He was dribbling with the ball and then leaned back to take a step-back shot into an imaginary net- something quite reminiscent of LeBron James’ or Kevin Durant’s style.

Fenerbahce look like they are finally coming into their own after a difficult campaign last season. The club has won eleven games on the bounce, and they are favourites to do the business against their Danish opponents.

Osayi-Samuel would look to churn out another strong performance for the Yellow Canaries to push them to victory.
