Victor Osimhen has said joining French club Lille was a means to secure a starting spot in the Super Eagles.
He said this in an interview with Bal des Productions monitored by our correspondent via Youtube.
Osimhen said, “It was really vital to come here. When they spoke to me about the project they had for me, I couldn’t wait to sign because I knew it was going to help me not just here, but also in the Eagles.
“I am really happy I made this wonderful decision and I am really looking forward to the future.”
In the interview, Osimhen said Eagles see invitation to the national team as a privilege and were ready to give their best.
He said, “We are a young squad like I always say and we want to continue to do well for the country and also for our clubs and bring the form back to Eagles. I am really looking forward to qualifying for the AFCON 2021.”
