The Nigerian Football legend, Kanu Nwanko has stated that the Napoli and Nigeria forward Victor Oshimen will be the next Nigeria that will be crowned the African Footballer of the year.



Kanu stated that among all the present super eagles players, only Oshimen has the potential of winning the award.

It will be noted that Kanu was the last Nigeria player to have won the award in1999.

He says:

“Osimhen, if you ask me, is the best player in Italy and if any of the current crop of Nigerian players is going to win the African Player of The Year award, it has to be him. He is doing fantastically well in the Italian Serie A that it’s only a matter of time before he rules Africa,” Kanu said.

“He is the best player and top scorer in the Italian league now and if he maintains his form he will win the African Player of The Year award sooner than expected. There are other Nigerian players doing very well in Europe, but Osimhen is presently the best.”
