Video: Basaksehir Dedicate Video To Teach Teammates & Fans How to Pronounce New Transfer Azubuike Okechukwu’s Name

Basaksehir completed the transfer of Azubuike Okechukwu on a one-year loan from Pyramids with an option to buy today as confirmed on the official club website.

Okechukwu officially put pen to paper to the deal at the club headquarters in Istanbul.

The Nigeria international has a name that could give the average Turkish speaker some difficulties pronouncing so Basaksehir took it upon themselves to teach fellow teammates and supporters how to say Azubuike Okechukwu correctly.

Basaksehir shared the following video on their social media channels to educate fans and teammates about their new player.

His surname, in particular, got a few of the players involved in the video confused.

Okechukwu does go onto pronounce his name properly but we did find ourselves replaying it several times as he talks pretty fast.

Basaksehir finished last season as runners-up in the Super Lig and have booked a place in the Champions League.

The Istanbul based side will however, have to progress past the playoff stage before making the group round.
