Former Nigeria midfielder, Austin ‘Jay Jay’ Okocha, has said that Victor Osimhen deserves to win the CAF Player of the Year.
The winner of the prize will be announced at an event on December 11 in Morocco.
Osimhen is one of the favourites to win the prestigious individual award.
The Napoli striker will be up against players like Moroccan goalkeeper Yassine Bounou, Achraf Hakimi of PSG, and former Manchester City winger Riyad Mahrez.
“He [Osimhen] deserves it because for me, he was the most consistent player of last season. He deserves it,” Okocha said during a Bundesliga media round table.
Osimhen led Napoli to their first Serie A title in 33 years last season, scoring 26 goals.
