Rangers manager Steven Gerrard believes Joe Aribo possessed the quality to become one of the best players in the world, Completesports.com reports.
Aribo has earned rave reviews for his performances for club and country in recent weeks.
The 23-year-old proved his class on the international stage with a clinical strike in Nigeria’s 1-1 friendly draw against five-time world champions Brazil last week.
He scored on his debut for the Super Eagles against Ukraine in September.
Gerrard who took a big gamble by signing the little known midfielder from Charlton Athletic in the summer backed him to take the world by storm in few years to come.
“The moment of the goal against Brazil and the type of goal, he will score them throughout his career because he’s got all the attributes to make the box and I still have to pinch myself that we got him here,”Gerrard told hitc.com.
“Joe can be whatever he wants to be if he stays humble.”
