While Nigerians are still basking in the euphoria of Victor Osimhen’s hat-trick that helped the U-23 progressed to the next round of the Africa U-23 Cup of Nations qualifiers at the expense of Libya on a 4-2 aggregate score, the man, who discovered him said there’s more to his game than goals.
Emmanuel Amunike the present coach of Tanzania who had qualified them for the Africa Cup of Nations after a 39-year wait discovered and nurtured Osimhen to global recognition in 2015 at the World Youth Championship, where he emerged as top scorer for eventual champions, Nigeria.
Amunike, while reacting to the hat-trick scored by the 20 year old who’s on loan to Charleroi of Belgium from German side, Wolfsburg said Osimhen’s game isn’t all about goals not minding his 12 league goals this season in Belgium.
“Osimhen has grown in the last few months and his progress excites me a lot. I feel he has the potential to be one of the best players if he continue to work hard and also listen to advice”, Amunike told Owngoalnigeria.com.
