Victor Osimhen Named CAF African Player of the Year

Victor Osimhen, the Super Eagles striker, clinched the prestigious African Player of the Year 2023 award presented by the Confederation of African Football (CAF).

The SSC Napoli forward secured the CAF accolade during Monday’s awards ceremony in Marrakech, breaking a 23-year Nigerian dry spell since Kanu Nwankwo last received the honor.

Osimhen’s stellar performance, marked by 26 league goals, propelled Napoli to a historic Serie A title after 33 years. His achievements include becoming the first African to claim the “Pichichi” (top scorer) award, surpassing George Weah’s long-standing record.

His exceptional contributions not only secured Napoli’s Scudetto but also earned him recognition in the Serie A Team of the Year and the coveted Best Striker award for the 2022/23 campaign.
