Asamoah Gyan Predicts: Victor Osimhen Set to Claim African Footballer of the Year Title


Former Ghana captain Asamoah Gyan has tipped Super Eagles striker, Victor Osimhen to win this year’s African Player of the Year award.

Gyan said that Osimhen’s performance last season is enough to give him an edge over other players.

Osimhen, 24,scored 26 goals in 32 league appearances for the Partenopei as Napoli were crowned Serie A champions last season.

Former Arsenal forward Kanu Nwankwo was the last Nigerian to win the award in 1999. Gyan says he feels the striker is the right candidate to win the best African player award for 2023.

“For me, he (Osimhen) deserves it. As a striker and seeing what he is doing, for the first time in over 30 years, winning the league with Napoli. He deserves it,” Gyan told Brilla FM.
