Osimhen: I Grew Up Admiring Drogba

Super Eagles forward Victor Osimhen has expressed his admiration for Chelsea legend Didier Drogba, reports Completesports.com.

Osimhen also stated that he intends to mould his game after the former Ivory Coast striker.


The 20-year-old has enjoyed a perfect start to his career with French Ligue 1 side, Lille where he has scored seven goals in 10 league games.

“Didier Drogba, that’s my idol. In every sense of the term. For everything. The man, of course, and also the player he was, he told France Football.

“I grew up watching him. Still today, I’m addicted to his videos when I’m resting. In my free time, I go on YouTube, I look at his goals, his whole matches when he played in Marseille, Chelsea and Galatasaray.

“Unfortunately, I have not yet had the chance to meet him. I cannot wait to meet him one day. It would be a moment that would stay in my heart forever. And I would take advantage of it to take advice!”

  • Any current news about Eze being included in our next squad?

    Nigeria currently drop one point from FIFA rankings now 35th in the world.

    • Hahaha. No thanks to Imama and his fumbling CHAN team. The real SE under Rohr takes one steps forwards (playing a score draw with Brazil who are above us in the rankings), and the fake SE under Imama takes us three steps backwards (after being pummeled many times by Togo, who are below us in the ranking). The result is a dropped point! FIFA should recognise only one SE – the one managed by Rohr!

  • Well done bro but i would like u to admire Etoo because he’s far better than drogba
