Victor Osimhen, the most outstanding player of the victorious 2015 Golden Eaglets squad, and winner of CAF-Glo Youth Player of the Year Award, has confirmed that he will pursue his professional career at Wolfsburg, a German Bundesliga club.
Osimhen said the Wolfsburg’s coach assurances are morale booster for him and that he prefers playing for the German club to any other club in Europe.
“I just want to clear the air on this; I visited Wolfsburg and I think with the promises the Head Coach of the team made to me when I visited the arena, I think Wolfsburg is my destination.
“As long as I am enjoying myself there, I will be there for some years then, I will move on.’’
Osimhen, expressed confidence that he was cut out for great things in his football career, saying he would not relent in reaching for greater heights.
“Actually I was born for greatness and God has been guiding me. I think I am ripe enough to compete with big names in football and I think I still have enough to learn.
“Going to Europe to compete with the best requires a lot of hard work; the under-17 and under-21 are different from the football played in Europe but I think I am ready for the task ahead.
“Education is my first priority, though, I got the fame in football but I will like to continue my education in Europe; it will be best for me.’’
He urged Nigerian youths to always believe in themselves in all their endeavours.
“From my own experience, irrespective of the situation, we should just keep our heads high, be focused and put God first in all we do.
“I want to thank Coaches Emmanuel Amuneke and Samson Siasia for what they have done in my life.”
