Super Eagles manager, Gernot Rohr has expressed confidence in the ability of Victor Osimhen to become a world-class striker.
The German tactician made this known in an interview with Tuttomercatoweb.com, where he stated that the Nigerian international has what it takes to achieve it.
Recall that Osimhen scored a goal in Nigeria’s 2-1 victory against Cape Verde in a 2022 FIFA World Cup qualifiers and also netted a brace in Napoli’s 2-2 draw against Leicester City in Europa League.
In Rohr’s words, “Victor is currently one of the best strikers in Europe, but not yet in the world,” Rohr told Tuttomercatoweb.com. “Osimhen is young, ambitious and very motivated.”
“I think he has what it takes to become a great striker, one of the best ever. But he still has to grow.” Rohr added.
“We are very happy with him. Osimhen has made the whole process of the youth teams, already scoring important goals with the senior national team despite his young age,” he remarked.
“Our attack is certainly in good hands, also thanks to Victor.”
