Roberto Calenda, the agent of Napoli striker, Victor Osimhen, is on cloud nine after his client’s remarkable Ballon d’Or achievement.
Osimhen finished in eighth position in the 30-man shortlist.
The 24-year-old made history as the first Nigerian to achieve this feat.
It’s also best result ever for a Napoli player, given that the previous record belonged to Ruud Krol, who ended 15th in 1980.
Osimhen finished above three other Africans, Mohamed Salah (11th), Yassine Bounou (13th) and Andre Onana (23rd).
Calenda took to social media to celebrate the Nigeria international.
“8th in Ballon d’Or ranking!
You made history and the future is yours…Victor is coming!!!
Congrats @victorosimhen9,” he wrote on his X handle.
