“So many young footballers you see here and there love money and not football, but when you see this boy, you will see that he loves football,” the former Portsmouth, Middlesbrough and Everton man told Goal.

“That is why you see the desire and zeal in him every time, and if he keeps performing like this week in week out, training well and staying focused, he will be one of the top strikers in the world.

“He is an example to other young footballers who should watch the way he plays at the moment to check themselves.

“Osimhen is a young lad who fights, works so hard and scores goals every week.”
