Following his rise to the senior national team, Victor Osimhen is seen as the next big thing for Nigerian football, his former teammate in the national U-17, Okonkwo Orji has asserted.
Orji, who plies his trade in the Serie A with Bologna, said the VFL Wolfsburg player’s sudden rise to the Super Eagles is a testimony of the quality he possesses.
“I’m so glad about Osimhen’s rise to the senior national team. It’s a clear indication of his quality. I believe he would learn and in no time he would show the stuff he’s made of,” said Orji.
On his debut season, the forward said he was delighted the day he was introduced by Bologna in a league match, while pointing out that he would want to feature more in the coming season.
Orji featured only 9 times for Bologna last season and hopes for a better season and more playing time too at the Serie A club.
