Super Eagles Striker Victor Osimhen Wins Serie A Player of The Month Award
Following his outstanding start to the 2021-22 season, Napoli and Super Eagles striker Victor Osimhen has been named Serie A’s Player of the Month for September.
The 22-year-old poacher triumphed over Inter Milan midfielder Nicolo Barella, AC Milan’s Brahim Diaz, and Fiorentina’s Giacomo Bonaventura in the Italian Footballers’ Association award.
In September, Osimhen scored seven goals in six games for Luciano Spalletti’s side across all competitions.
After failing to score in Napoli’s 2-1 win over Juventus on September 11, the former Lille striker scored at least one goal in each of the three league games he played after that.
Osimhen’s goal-scoring prowess propelled Napoli to the top of the Serie A table, where they have yet to drop a point with 21 points from seven games.
“Sent to the vote by the editorial team of the Last Man, together with other decisive players in the good start of their teams (Barella, Brahim Diaz and Bonaventura), Osimhen won with more than half of the total votes,” read a statement on the AIC website.
“If what the fans, all the fans, want is for their centre forward to be a moving train, well no one in Serie A comes closer than him to embody this ideal.”
