Football fans have called on Nigeria international Victor Osimhen to replicate club form for the national team as Napoli bagged the Serie A title on Thursday night.
Some fans who spoke with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Ilorin on Friday celebrated Osimhen and Napoli for the great feat.
Mr Thomas Ibenjo said he wished Osimhen could replicate his Napoli form in the Super Eagles.
“I am happy for Osimhen for winning the Serie A in style. How I wish he could replicate the form in Super Eagles and drive us to glory again.
“He was instrumental in Napoli winning the Scudetto. We want him to also bring the form home to our darling super eagles and drive us to glory,” he said.
Olukunle Abiola said Osimhen had made a significant impact in his club, but much is expected of him at home.
“He has performed excellently in Napoli this season. We, the Super Eagles fans now want him to come and do the same at home,” he said.
On his part, Ahmed Usman said he started supporting Napoli because of Osimhen, who always gave him joy.
“I fell in love with Napoli because of Osimhen." I tried to watch all their matches because of his work rate and agility in every match.
“All I want from him now is to come and win the African Cup of Nations (AFCON) for Nigeria." Nigeria needs him to come and write his name in gold,” he said.
Mr. Femi Babatunde said that Osimhen had won the hearts of Napoli fans but had yet to win the hearts of Nigerian fans.
He said Osimhen was becoming more popular in Italy than Nigeria because of his performance.
“Osimhen should come home and win our hearts." "Nigeria is your home, and we deserve to celebrate a major trophy during your own time,” he said.
Osimhen scored in the 52nd minute against Udinese on Thursday night to hand Napoli its third Serie A title after 33 years.
Napoli has garnered 80 points from 33 games, while second-placed Lazio has 64 points with five games left in the season.
