Former Lazio and Super Eagles midfileder, Ogenyi Onazi has stated that Victor Osimhen should be rewarded with the Most Valuable Player (MVP) award in Serie A this season.
Osimhen has established himself as one of the deadliest strikers in the world this season and is on course to become the first African player to win the golden boot award in the Italian top-flight.
The 24-year-old has scored 26 goals this season and is one of the highest goal scorers in Europe and Onazi believes his former Super Eagles teammate will be a worthy winner of the MVP award.
“He deserves MVP for what he’s done in Serie A and also for what he’s done this season in the Champions League. I have no doubts,” Onazi told Tuttomercatoweb.
“Osimhen continues to grow and will do even better. In Nigeria we have had strikers who have written football history but Osimhen is still a starter and, I think for him only the sky will be the limit.” he added
