Kanu Backs Osimhen To Win CAF Player Of The Year Award

Former Super Eagles star, Nwankwo Kanu, has tipped Victor Osimhen to win the CAF player of the year award.

Osimhen has been impressive for Napoli this season scoring six goals in his last six matches in all competitions including a brace against Leicester City in the Europa League.

“Osimhen, if you ask me, is the best player in Italy and if any of the current crop of Nigerian players is 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 urged Osimhen to keep working hard to improve his game to maintain his impressive form.
