Former Super Eagles captain Austin ‘Jay Jay’ Okocha has tipped Victor Osimhen to be named CAF Player of the Year for 2023 after his exploits with his Italian club Napoli.
Osimhen, 24, was top scorer in Serie A as Napoli won the Italian league last season for the first time since 1990.
Okocha said Osimhen’s consistency at the highest level has won him the prestigious gong.
“He (Osimhen) deserves it because for me, he was the most consistent player of last season,” remarked the former PSG midfield star.
Nwankwo Kanu was the last Nigeria star to win the CAF Player of the Year Award in 1999.
The CAF Awards ceremony will be staged on Monday, December 11 in Marrakesh, Morocco.
