Osimhen is the Future of Nigerian Football - Ighalo

By Ilekhuoba Taiye - Former Nigerian International and Manchester United forward, Odion Jude Ighalo has tipped Rising Nigerian star, Victor Osimhen for the future after being linked with the Red Devils.
The young forward has impressed in his first season for French ligue 1 side Lile, scoring 18 goals in 38 appearances after Nicholas Pepes' exit to Arsenal. Thanks to his dazzling and scintillating form, the Ivorian International absence hasn't been noticed since his exit.
The Nigerian International has perfectly filled ighalo's void in the national team after notching in 4 goals in 9 appearances for the African giants.

Osimhen was present as Manchester United and Emmanuel Dennis Club Brugge battled it out in an Europa league encounter. And Ighalo has this to say to the youngster, "I talk to Osimhen, he’s a very nice boy, young, he’s a good guy,” Ighalo said in an interview with Elegbete TV.

“We talk, not almost every day, but almost every time I advise him. He’s the future of Nigerian football. He’s the future, he’s going to do so well in football. I always advise him to keep calm, keep working hard and the guy is going to be a celebrity, you know."

“He came to watch our game against Club Brugge in Belgium because it’s closer to where he lives, he messaged me he was going to come so I gave him my jersey, and in fact he brought his own jersey for me too."
“Osimhen is a nice boy, we’re from the same place. I love him, he’s down to earth, he’s hard working, he has a future and he has the mentality of a winner, that’s what I love about him. He has that lion’s heart."

“I love him, I just want him to keep working hard the way he’s doing, he’s going to break so many records in Europe and Nigeria.”
