Victor Osimhen Sets Sights on More Trophies After Record-Breaking Season
Nigeria striker Victor Osimhen has revealed that his ambition is stronger than ever as he aims to add more titles to his trophy cabinet after a record-breaking 2022-23 season with Napoli. Osimhen, 24, played a pivotal role in guiding SSC Napoli to their first Serie A title in 33 years, scoring an impressive 26 goals along the way. This remarkable achievement earned him the title of Serie A striker of the year and propelled him to become the highest-valued player in Serie A history, with a valuation of 120 million euros.
Reflecting on his success, Osimhen expressed his delight at winning one of the most prestigious titles in world football and emphasized his hunger for more. He stated, “Winning the Scudetto is a big one for me. Whatsoever thing that comes after this (will also be) a big one for me, like the Champions League, the League Cup, and all sorts.” Clearly, Osimhen’s aspirations extend beyond domestic glory, as he sets his sights on conquering Europe and adding more silverware to his collection.
Osimhen’s journey to success has not been without its challenges. Although he burst onto the scene as one of the most promising young talents after winning the FIFA U17 World Cup in 2015, his transition to professional football proved difficult. Injuries and a loss of confidence in his abilities led him to a loan move to Belgium before finding his footing at Charleroi. Subsequently, he moved to Lille in Ligue 1 before securing a record transfer to Napoli.
The striker spoke passionately about his pride in becoming a Scudetto winner and the motivation it has given him to achieve further honors. He stated, “Now I’m addicted, and I can’t wait for the new season to come.” Osimhen’s hunger for success is palpable, and it is evident that he is determined to continue making a name for himself on the biggest stages in football.
Osimhen’s impact at Napoli extends beyond the pitch. He has become a revered figure among the fans, with his mask now serving as a symbol of his hero status. The city of Naples has embraced him wholeheartedly, with artists even painting his face on buildings throughout the city. Osimhen expressed his gratitude for the overwhelming support he has received, stating, “I have never seen a city crazier about football like the way the Neapolitans are. They show all their players love. And wherever I go to, I am being respected.”
In conclusion, Victor Osimhen’s ambition knows no bounds as he aims to build on his record-breaking season and fill his trophy cabinet with more titles. His determination, coupled with the unwavering support of the Neapolitans, makes for an exciting prospect for the upcoming season. As Osimhen himself puts it, “My children’s children will come into this world and realize that their father has done something amazing.” With such unwavering self-belief, it’s clear that Osimhen is a force to be reckoned with in the world of football.
