  • Greenturf 2 years ago

    Why was he on the bench in the first place? was it because he didn’t score last weekend even though he scored twice the week prior?it’s worrying indeed,does it mean he has to be consistent scoring for his new team to guarantee first team football?I see that as too much pressure for a 20 years old,if that’s the case.

  • Omesiete 2 years ago

    He was only rested for their league game, they also need to give other players opportunity. Fantastic [email protected] Osimhen, keep it up bro

    “He also bagged two goals on his debut appearance for MONACO in the league.” CSN why this ? You’ve pass this Level nah.

  • One significant aspect of ‘the rise of Osimhen’ is the joy it brings to see a Nigerian goal poacher who doesn’t necessarily (over-)rely on ‘speed’ as a main attribute.

    Over the years, I have seen deadly strikers like Didier Drogba, Ruud Van Nistelrooy, and even our own Yakubu Aigbeni who were known for being extremely clinical, opportunistic and devious in front of goal.

    These were strikers known for purposeful movements, excellent positional sense and intelligent reactions. Not that they didn’t have pace, they just knew when to accelerate to devastating effect in inflicting maximum punishment to defences.

    These were technically gifted, well-rounded forwards who were born to score goals aplenty!

    In the games I have seen Osimhen this season, he went quiet for spells only to come alive when it matter most to do what he does best – score goals (at times with attributes akin to great strikers of old).

    Am I getting carried away, I think so. The young man still has a long-long way to go more so in national team football.

    The Afcon Bronze medallist is still very much work in progress however he has shown enough to suggest that he can develop into a well-rounded centre forward of repute.

    As with some promising Nigerian stars, lack of focus has been a bane. If this kid stays focused, he will go places.
