Ghana international, Osman Bukari looks set to become an untouchable player at Red Star Belgrade following his explosive start to life in Serbia.

The former Accra Lions talented teenager joined the Serbian club this summer in a move that saw him leave Belgian club KAA Gent.

In Belgium, Osman Bukari struggled for playing time as he was nicknamed the ‘Lazy Cheetah’.

Last season, he was loaned out to FC Nantes and helped the club to win the French Cup.

After he was shipped out of KAA Gent this summer, he has already made a name for himself in Serbia.

In midweek, he was a star for Red Star Belgrade when the team faced off with Pyunik from Armenia.

In the important home match, the forward was unplayable, and used his pace to his advantage to terrorise the defense of the opponent.

At the end of the game, Osman Bukari scored a hat-trick to lead his team to a big 5-0 win.

Since that display, he has been the talk of town amongst Red Star Belgrade fans in Serbian and has become an instant fan favourite after scoring 5 goals and assisting two goals.
