My Ambition Is To Win CAF Player Of The Year Award – Osimhen

My Ambition Is To Win CAF Player Of The Year Award - Osimhen

By Ehis Davies

Super Eagles and Napoli striker, Victor Osimhen has revealed his readiness to clinch the Africa Footballer Of The year Award.

The Nigerian international, who joined Napoli in the summer transfer window, made this known via a video posted by Napoli on Saturday.

Osimhen was named the best African player in Ligue 1 after his contribution of 13 goals in 27 matches for Lille. He has made two appearances for Napoli in the Serie A this season.

The Super Eagles forward has now revealed that CAF’s most prized individual award remains a target for him, after claiming the youth version of the award in 2015.

“My dream is to become the African Footballer of the Year,” Osimhen said in a video posted by Napoli.

“I still have a long way to go but I think I’m working towards that direction and I think I am on the right path.

“As a man, it won’t be easy but I think having my own family will be a dream come true for me. I still have a long way to go, so I’m not thinking about that now.

“Football is the only thing on my mind right now, I just want to keep focusing and of course, with my new club a lot is expected of me.”
