Family is everything for Victor Osimhen, one of the best exponents of the current Super Eagles squad.
The Napoli forward grew up in a poor slum in Olusosun with his family.
And despite his epic rise in the game – from making a name at the 2015 FIFA U17 World Cup to becoming the most expensive player in Africa when he signed for the former Italian Serie A champions – he’s never forgotten his roots.
As stated earlier, he is one person who shares bond with family due to a poor background. That brought the superstar even closer, and he’s always keen to share pictures of his sister on social media.
Blessing Osimhen sacrificed a lot for the growth of the goal getter. She is believed to have nurtured young Osimhen after they lost their mother over two decades ago. She isn’t afraid to speak her mind when it comes to her brother.
Although the family were poor, the former Sporting Charleroi star was never left wanting for anything.
His brother, Andrew, a former footballer himself, always made sure the lad had a ball to practice on the streets with.
Although Andrew was talented, he never made it as a Footballer in Olusosun – the slum where Victor.
Andrew put all his efforts and focus into ensuring his brother bettered his career.
The rest they say is history. Struggles of yesterday has now turned to enjoyment with Victor making the family proud as a Footballer.
