“When I was young, my favorite team was Barcelona with Samuel Eto’o,” Nigerian star striker Victor Osimhen once told the media, according to Diario Sport.

“It is still my favourite team,” the 24-year-old added.

Victor is the next man after Joao Cancelo to declare his love for Barcelona’s 2009 team.

The player is currently on bad terms with his current club, Napoli, after the Serie A club came up with a controversial post on their TikTok.


Last season, Osimhen bagged 31 goals and provided 5 assists in 39 appearances for Napoli last season. He led his side to the Serie A title and the Champions League semifinal.
