Osimhen can win Ballon d’Or in future – Peseiro
Super Eagles Head Coach, Jose Peseiro, believes that Victor Osimhen can win the Ballon d’Or in the future. Osimhen is among the 30 players nominated for the 2023 men’s Ballon d’Or.
While it would be difficult for the 24-year-old to win the prestigious award this year, going by the calibre of players on the list, Peseiro is optimistic that he will emerge tops in the future.
“He (Osimhen) can surely win the Ballon d’Or in the future. He’s not lacking anything to do it,” Peseiro said in an interview with Italian publication II Mattino.
“He has different characteristics than other players that are at the top at this moment, but he scores a lot as well.”
The forward has also been nominated for the FIFA Best Men’s award.
