OYOGist.com has learned that Victor Osimhen has maintained that his biggest achievement is to cater for his family’s needs and to keep them out of trouble in equal measures. His three brothers and the entire family, including four parents, lived in one room until his mother died when Osimhen was just six years old. Looking back at his challenges for stardom, Osimhen said when their daily life was so bad, it was hard to believe in the future.
“Shortly after that my dad lost his employment. To us it was the end of the planet. It’s hard to believe in the future where I come from, when your daily life is so terrible. No-one can support you, because people have nothing.”
“I can give anything they want to my family now. Since I was a specialist I was able to get them out of trouble easily and give them the life they deserve. It’s my life’s biggest success, he said”. Osimhen started his path to stardom when, back in 2015, he led the U-17 team from Nigeria at the FIFA World Cup in Chile.
IThe Nigerian ended up becoming the top scorer, and later joined VFL Wolfsburg, the German Bundesliga team, before joining Charleroi on loan. A good spell with Belgian side helped secure a contract last summer with French giants Lille, where he continued his impressive form of goal scoring.
