Osimhen: Drogba is my soccer hero

Super Eagles and Napoli forward, Victor Osimhen, has named Chelsea legend, Didier Drogba, as his football hero.


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 Chelsea.


At the age of 24, Osimhen presently has 85 club goals, and he still has plenty of time to surpass his idol’s total.


Meanwhile, Osimhen, has revealed the position in which he began his career.


According to him, he began his career as a defender, but the goal machine has now evolved into one of Africa’s top strikers.


Before joining VfL Wolfsburg in 2017, the Super Eagles forward began his career with the Ultimate Strikers Academy.


Prior to the move, he scored 11 goals for Emmanuel Amunike’s team while playing in a few games for the Nigeria U17 side in 2015. And the same year, he played for the Samson Siasia U23 team until being ultimately called up to the Super Eagles squad in 2017.

The Nigerian has already scored 100 goals in his career after deviating from the first position he started with, surpassing the two greats, Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo, in the process.


On the first position he started as a footballer, Osimhen said, “I was a defender.”
