Oliseh: Ighalo Is Good, But Osimhen Is Exceptional Striker Who Can Get Better

Odion Ighalo is a good striker, but Victor Osimhen is an exceptional young player, former Super Eagles coach and captain, Sunday Oliseh has posited, Completesports.com reports

While fielding questions from Completesports.com in Abuja on Thursday on the recall of l Ighalo from retirement, Oliseh said only Gernot Rohr knew the motive for bringing the striker back from retirement and how he would use him in the midst of abundant talents at his disposal


“Gernot Rohr is the coach of Super Eagles and only him knows why he recalled Ighalo from retirement. Ighalo is good, but Victor Osimhen is an exceptional young player doing so well in a big league in Europe,” Oliseh remarked.


“You want me to compare Osimhen with the Late Rashidi Yekini? I will say Yekini with whom I played at Super Eagles is a natural and proven goal scorez but Osimhen is exceptional striker who can only get better

“He [Osimhen] is good with the ball on his feet, his movement with and without the ball is great and he is proving to be a good goals scorer too. Aside the physical difference, Osimhen has all the attributes of Baba Yekini plus his own natural talent. So I believe he can be better than Yekini if he doesn’t get carried away,” the former Super Eagles midfield ace stated.
