    Osimhen

    Nwankwo Kanu, a former striker for the Nigerian Super Eagles and Arsenal, has expressed his belief that Napoli striker Victor Osimhen will be the next Nigerian to be named African Footballer of the Year.

    Kanu, who was the last Nigerian to win the African Player of the Year title in 1999 after winning it earlier in 1996, believes that Osimhen’s performance in the Italian Seria A is a clear indicator that he would win the coveted honor soon.

    Nwankwo Kanu, speaking following the World Heart Day walk in Abuja on September 29, said:

    “Osimhen, if you ask me, is the best player in Italy and if any of the current crops of Nigerian players are 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,” Kanu said.

    “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.”

    Kanu also urged Osimhen not to be distracted by his recent accolades and to continue working hard for both club and country.

      I agree with Kanu. The dude has proven over time that he has what it takes to grasp the award – African Footballer of the year.
