Striker, Victor Osimhen Named Serie A Player Of The Month

Nigerian Super Eagles striker, Victor Osimhen has been voted the Italian Serie A’s Player of the Month for September.

Osimhen came back after a disappointing start of the 2021/2022 season in August after being sent off in the opening game against newly promoted Venezia making him miss the next fixture against Genoa.

Since then, Osimhen has become a nightmare to opposing defenders, scoring seven goals in eight matches for Napoli all in September.

Out of eight goals, his first of the season came against Udinese with a follow up of a brace against Sampdoria and adding another to his Serie A tally against Cagliari.

Away from his goals, Osimhen has contributed to Napoli’s 100 percent start to the season by winning two penalties for his team. On the continental stage, Osimhen also scored three goals in the Europa League, with a brace coming against his country men in Leicester City.
