The 2023 Africa Men’s Player of the Year, Victor Osimhen, has dedicated his award to Nigerian legend Emmanuel Amunike.
Osimhen, who broke the 24-year jinx to become the best male player in the continent, hailed Amunike who tutored him as an U-17 player that paved the way for his illustrious career.
According to Osimhen, “Thank you God for everything. Special thanks goes to Emmanuel Amunike without him I don’t think I would be here receiving this award. I appreciate Nigeria, and Africa for the encouragement over the years.”
