“One of the best attackers ever”– Napoli forward Osimhen names his football idol
The Nigerian international has recently been tagged as one of the best attackers in Africa after tallying 18 goals in 19 league matches for the Parthenopeans.
Nigerian forward, Victor Osimhen, has named Chelsea legend, Didier Drogba, as his football hero.
The Super Eagles striker has garnered attention recently for his performance, winning various accolades and tallying a sizable amount of goals.
Meanwhile, the 24-year-old has been compared with Drogba by former Chelsea boss, José Mourinho, who once managed his Ivorian Idol.
After Napoli’s 2-1 triumph against The She-Wolf, the current AS Roma manager told Soccernet.ng that the Nigerian is on “the same level” as the Ivorian great.
However, this might be the consequence of Osimhen emulating his idol for years, much as Kylian Mbappé admires Portuguese and former Real Madrid forward, Cristiano Ronaldo,
Osimhen confessed that he enjoys the way he plays and thinks he is the finest in a video posted on the club’s social media page.
“I watched Drogba a lot, how he played. I consider him one of the best attackers ever.” he said.
Drogba scored 302 goals in 688 appearances across his tenure at clubs around Europe. During his time at Chelsea, he scored 164 goals in 381 games for the Blues.
At the age of 24, Victor Osimhen presently has 85 club goals, and he still has plenty of time to surpass his idol’s total.
