BRIGHT Osayi-Samuel is hoping that the hard-work he’s been putting in training will allow him to have a breakthrough season.
The 20-year-old has had had a really encouraging pre-season and capped it off with an excellent display against Union Berlin on Saturday – scoring the opening goal in a 3-0 victory.
Speaking after the match, Osayi-Samuel told www.qpr.co.uk that he feels the work he’s been putting in training is allowing him to take his game to the next level.
“I’m working on my individual game every day in training without fail and hopefully I can just continue to impress,” explained Bright.
“I’m learning a lot from the manager, I know this year I need to be as wide as possible so once the ball has been clipped over I can use my pace and hopefully take the players on and do my thing.”
The winger felt that the team’s performance on Saturday afternoon showed that they are ready for the opening game of the season against Preston North End at Deepdale next week.
“I thought first of all the team played well, what we have done throughout the week in training we showed in today’s game. Individually I’m happy with the performance, I took my goal well but more importantly, the team played well.”
Bright was set-up by Eberechi Eze who found him with a crisp pass before he slotted in with his left foot. The pair has known each other since they were early teenagers and he believes that the relationship off the pitch helps them to blossom on it.
“I’ve known Ebere for quite a long time now. I know his strengths and that when he has the ball the first thing he thinks of is driving forward. For me what I need to do is just support him and get in the right spaces where he can slip me through.”
And Bright now can’t wait for the season to begin. After six long weeks of hard work he’s hoping that the boys are rewarded when they take on Preston on Saturday.
“I’m very excited, it has been six weeks of hard work, so it’s now up to us to show the fans how good we are!”
