Osimhen reaffirms inspiration from Chelsea legend Drogba globally known

Posted : 24 April 2024

Victor Osimhen, the Super Eagles forward, has emphasized his admiration for Chelsea legend Didier Drogba, a two-time African Footballer of the Year, stating that Drogba is his mentor.

Osimhen's playing style, characterized by his hold-up play, aerial ability, and physical presence, often draws comparisons to Drogba, who left an indelible mark on the Premier League during his tenure at Stamford Bridge.

The camaraderie between Osimhen and Drogba has been evident, hinting at a close relationship between the two players.

Speculation has arisen that Drogba, who has expressed his admiration for Osimhen's talent, might be encouraging the Napoli star to consider a move to Chelsea, one of his former clubs.

In an interview with Il Matino, Osimhen reiterated his reverence for Drogba and acknowledged the profound influence the Ivorian striker has had on his own playing style.

Osimhen credited his time at Charleroi as a pivotal moment in his career, where he was inspired to emulate Drogba's footballing prowess and integrate aspects of his game into his own.

Having recently been awarded the CAF Men's Player of the Year, Osimhen is poised to follow in the footsteps of his mentor and carve out his own legacy, potentially with Chelsea.

The prospect of Osimhen joining Chelsea in the upcoming transfer window adds an intriguing dimension to his career trajectory, as he aims to etch his name alongside that of his revered mentor in the club's history.
