Ex-Super Eagles player, Friday Elahor has come out to hail Napoli-bound striker, Victor Osimhen.
He recently revealed that other Nigerian footballers have to emulate the youngster because he has contributed a lot to the Ligue 1 since he started playing there.
According to Elaho, he is very impressed with the performances from the striker and he should keep making Nigeria proud.
He added that he expects Osimhen to play a key role in Nigeria’s qualification for the next AFCON tournament.
His words, “I have been following the news about Osimhen going to Napoli, but I don’t know why the deal hasn’t been confirmed yet,”
“Again, I think Osimhen has done well for himself and the country. Currently, he is the most rated Nigerian player in Europe. Other players I think should emulate him.
“I read recently that he changed his manager for his move to Napoli scale through. If his club is still reporting that some clubs are still coming for his signature despite his almost completed negotiations with Lille, it shows how good and important he is rated.”
“Very soon the Afcon and World Cup qualifiers will begin, definitely Osimhen has a pivotal role to play towards Nigeria’s qualification for the tournaments,”
“I see him winning the Africa Footballer of the Year in the nearest future if he can maintain his form. Others should brace up to the challenge.”
