I’ve surpassed my target as a footballer – Osimhen

Osimhen’s agent admits Super Eagles striker could leave Napoli

Victor Osimhen, Napoli’s star player, said he outperformed his personal expectations for his career and credits his success to God.

Osimhen stated this in an Instagram conversation with Nigerian sports content creator Oma Akatugba on Monday.

The 24-year-old Nigerian International said that his success as a footballer is the result of a lot of pain, tears, and failures that shaped him into the star player he is today.

The Serie A top scorer so far in the 2022/2023 season said he faced many challenges on his way to the top, adding that many looked down on him and never expected him to achieve the level of success he is currently enjoying.

He also said he is happy to be proving his naysayers wrong.

When asked if he had surpassed his target as a footballer, Osimhen said, “For me, more than 100 percent, more like 1001 percent, because I set a standard for myself, the kind of life I want to live and even when things were not going so well for me I kept on believing, dreaming, praying and working hard, doing all sorts of jobs before I went back to my real love, football.

“There was a lot of obstacles along the way to get to where I am today. A lot of hate, backstabbing, and also love. I attribute my success to a lot of love, pain, tears, failures. Many didn’t believe I could make it, they said I wouldn’t survive two years. I was laughed at when two clubs rejected me in Belgium, but I never allowed all those get to me.

“You either take it like they have said it or you prove them absolutely wrong. God so good I have proved them wrong. I’m playing in one of the best clubs in Europe, I have been nominated for the youth player of the year, I have won so many personal awards for myself, which I feel is a huge milestone for me, considering the fact that I’ve gone through a lot of life threatening issues, I came back and I’m doing quite well for myself.

“That’s why everytime I wake up, I’m so grateful to God and thank him for everything, because if I had not gotten to where I am today, I would have given a lot of people a reason to talk down on me in my career. I’m winning against all odds and I’ve won against people who had written me off and wished me bad in my journey.

“I’m so grateful to God for where I am today and I know he isn’t done with me.”

Osimhen is the highest goal scorer so far this season in the Italian league Serie A with 14 goals scored in 16 matches played.
