Charleroi Loan Restored My Confidence – Victor Osimhen

Despite being a part of the team for two years, his lack of games meant he missed out on going to the 2018 World Cup with Nigeria

Nigeria international striker Victor Osimhen has opened up on how moving on-loan to Belgian club Charleroi has helped bring back his confidence.

“At Charleroi I have comfortably found my happiness again, and I thank everyone in Belgium and at Wolfsburg for the opportunity and support.

“My confidence level was very low at some point and what going out on loan to Charleroi has done for me is unexplainable.

“As a young player, you hear people comparing you to other stars who emerged from the under-17 World Cup and never fulfilled their potential,” Osimhen told BBC Sport.

Osimhen was the top scorer as Nigeria clinched a fifth Under-17 World Cup title in 2015 with 10 goals in Chile, which saw him win the Golden Boot and Silver Ball.
