Funsho Bamgboye joins MOL Fehervar FC

The forward links up with Vidi having most recently played for Szombathely Haladas.

Funsho Bamgboye was born on the 9th January 1999 in Nigeria. He moved to Hungary and signed for Haladas in January 2017 at the age of 18. He had been a member of the U17 World Cup winning Nigerian team in 2015. Bamgboye played in 81 minutes of the 2-0 win over USA in the opening game. He then came on after 54 minutes in the 5-1 win over Chile. However, we picked up a red card that meant he had to miss the next game with Croatia. He played 78 minutes in the 6-0 win over Australia and was replaced after 90 minutes as Nigeria beat Brazil 3-0. He was suspended for the semi-final match with Mexico but his team still won 4-2 to make it into the U17 final. He returned in that match against Mali and scored in the 2-0 win.

„Funsho came to Hungary to play football at a very young age. He had drawn attention to himself when playing for his youth team with his pace and goal scoring. He has gone on to show what he can do in senior football since by doing this in difficult circumstances last season. I am sure that he has the capability to develop further under the guidance of the coaching team as he is still only 19. The competition for places will surely help his development" - commented Zoltan Kovacs - director of football.

Funsho has played in 36 NB I matches over the last 3 seasons in the colours of Haladas. Bamgboye has scored four goals in matches against Honved, Paks and two against Ujpest. 

"This is a big opportunity for me as I link up with Vidi. We are talking about one of the best teams in the country. I want to be celebrating winning the league title and it is attractive to me to be showing what I can do in Europe. My message to the supporters is that I will always give everything I have to help the team be successful. I have been playing in Hungary for a while now so naturally I know about this club. It was not a difficult decision to move here" - explained the player who has also played for Qatar club Aspire Academy and the Nigerian U17 side. "I have nice memories of my time there and we won the U17 World Cup in 2015. Hopefully if I can perform well here, then I can represent my country again. I spent four years in Qatar I remember back to that time with a warm heart. The facilities there were great and we had good coaches to helped us to develop."
