Omeruo talks up Osimhen’s potential
Nigeria defender, Kenneth Omeruo, has said that Super Eagles and Napoli of Italy forward, Victor Osimhen has the capability to become a great player in the future.
Omeruo bared his mind on the Napoli striker during an interview with Brila Fm.
‘I like Osimhen a lot. I like his energy and I think he’ll go very far,’ said the Center half.
‘I’m not saying we don’t have many players but I look at him and think he’ll go far.’
Osimhen has 10 caps and scored five times for the senior national team since he made his debut against Togo in 2017 in a friendly.
Known for his pace and strength, Osimhen, however, hasn’t thrived in front of goal since moving from Lille last summer to Serie A side, Napoli.
Osimhen has just returned to action for Napoli after a three month lay off after pulling his shoulder during last year”s AFCON qualifier against Sierra Leone in Benin.
The match ended four goals apiece with Super Eagles throwing away hefty 4-0 advantage.
