Fenerbahce wing-back Bright Osayi-Samuel: I was right to reject Man Utd

Fenerbahce wing-back Bright Osayi-Samuel has spoken of turning down Manchester United as a junior player.

Osayi-Samuel was signed from QPR last month by Fener.

He revealed: “Manchester United was following me when I was young but I chose Blackpool.

"I think the decision I made at that time was the most important decision in my life. When such an offer comes; When it comes to offers from teams like Manchester United and Arsenal, you want to go.

"When I met my Mum and Dad, we thought it would be difficult for me back then. I went to Blackpoool to improve myself and to advance my career. I always try to make the right decisions for myself."

He also said: "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."
