Ghana midfielder Emmanuel Agyemang-Badu proved his versatility when he played at right-back in the last 20 minutes on his Turkish Super Lig debut on Friday evening.
The 27-year-old was switched to improvise in the role after the substantive right-back suffered cramps on the 69th minute.
Badu, on loan from Italian Serie A side Udinese, lasted the entire duration of the game for the Green and Whites who succumbed to a 1-0 defeat on the opening day of the season.
Dutch attacker Elia scored the only goal of the game in the 21st minute of the clash at the Başakşehir Fatih Terim Stadyumu.
Former Cameroon boss Paul Le Guen has huge confidence in the midfielder who is capped 76 times for Ghana.
He joined Bursaspor on a season-long loan deal from Udinese after rejecting a move to English side Birmingham City.
