Osimhen

Super Eagles legend, Nwoko Kanu, has described Napoli’s Victor Osimhen as Nigeria’s best in Europe.

He says he is doing so well that he is likely to be the country’s African Footballer of the Year.

Kanu is the last Nigerian to win the African Player of The Year award in 1999 after winning it earlier in 1996 says that the performance of Osimhen in the Italian Seria A is a clear indication that he can win the coveted award soon.

Speaking after the World Heart Day walk in Abuja on Wednesday, September 29, Nwankwo Kanu said,

“Osimhen, if you ask me, is the best player in Italy and if any of the current crop of Nigerian players is going to win the African Player of The Year award, it has to be him. He is doing fantastically well in the Italian Serie A that it’s only a matter of time before he rules Africa.

“He is the best player and top scorer in the Italian league now and if he maintains his form he will win the African Player of The Year award sooner than expected. There are other Nigerian players doing very well in Europe, but Osimhen is presently the best.”
