Victor Osimhen was understandably delighted after winning the continent’s Youth Player of the Year at last weekend’s Glo/CAF Awards held in Abuja.
Osimhen, who was record-breaking goal king at the U17 World Cup in Chile with 10 goals, was seemingly short of words when he tweeted on his Twitter handle: @VictorOsimhen moments after scooping the Award.
“Thanks to my family, my friends and my fans for this award: #youngplayeroftheyear2015 #GloCAFAwards2015 #NIGERIA.
Shortly before the award, Osimhen broke the news of his destination in Europe: “I’ve visited Wolfsburg and with the promises the coach made to me when I visited the arena, I think Wolfsburg is my destination…I’m going to stay at Wolfsburg for as long as the team can keep me.”
Osimhen has been linked with various sides including Arsenal over the past months but now it seems the 16-year-old Ultimate Strikers player has made up his mind and would be going to the Bundesliga where he hopes to develop into a credible senior talent.
