Ogenyi Onazi, a midfielder for the Super Eagles, believes Victor Osimhen should be named Serie A’s Most Valuable Player (MVP) for his outstanding play for Napoli.

Osimhen has racked up 21 goals in 25 appearances for Napoli, spurring his team on to pursue their first Italian league championship in 33 years since the illustrious Diego Maradona left the team.

Speaking to the Italian news outlet Tuttomercatoweb, Onazi said: “He [Osimhen] 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.

“Victor 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.”

Onazi once plied his trade in the Serie A, representing Lazio and Casertana in the past.

On the international scene, he was part of the victorious Super Eagles team in the 2013 African Cup of Nations and also represented Nigeria at the FIFA 2014 World Cup in Brazil.
