Nigerian born, Manchester United striker, Odion Ighalo had tipped Lile forwarder, Victor Osimhen to become great in the future. Osimhen paid a visit to watch Ighalo play in Red Devils Europa League second leg clash against Clubbe Brugge at Old Trafford in February.
“I talk to Osimhen, he’s a very nice boy, young, he’s a good guy,” Ighalo said in an interview with Elegbete TV.
“We talk, not almost every day, but almost every time I advise him. “He’s the future of Nigerian football. He’s the future, he’s going to do so well in football.
“I always advise him to keep calm, keep working hard and the guy is going to be a celebrity, you know.
“He came to watch our game against Club Brugge in Belgium because it’s closer to where he lives, he messaged me he was going to come so I gave him my jersey, and in fact he brought his own jersey for me, too.
“Osimhen is a nice boy, we’re from the same place. I love him, he’s down to earth, he’s hard-working, he has a future and he has the mentality of a winner, that’s what I love about him. He has that lion’s heart. “I love him, I just want him to keep working hard the way he’s doing, he’s going to break so many records in Europe and Nigeria.
