Organiser of the Italian topflight Serie A has said Victor Osimhen’s legacy as top scorer last season will endure for forever.
Osimhen became the first-ever African to finish as top scorer in Serie A.
The Super Eagles striker bagged 26 goals to help Napoli clinch a first league title since 1990.
Also it is their third after claiming it in the 1986/1987 and 1989/1990 seasons.
Reflecting on Osimhen’s feat, the football league body wrote: “The season’s over but his legacy as capocannoniere will endure for eternity.
“Victor Osimhen: The 2022/23 top scorer with 26 goals!“
Osimhen is expected to be in action for the Super Eagles when they face Sierra Leone on match-day five of the 2023 AFCON qualifiers in Monrovia, Liberia.
The Group A game comes up on Sunday, June 18, 2023.
