Super Eagles striker named Ligue 1 Player of the Month

Lille striker, Victor Osimhen, has been named the French Ligue 1 Player of the Month for September 2019.

The Super Eagles star, who joined Lille this summer from Sporting Charleroi, won 45% of the vote to finish ahead of Monaco’s Islam Slimani (37%) and Nantes’ Nicolas Pallois (18%).

Osimhen was involved in four goals (2 goals, 2 assists) for his new side last month.

He found the net against SCO Angers and Strasbourg and provided assists in matches against Rennes and Strasbourg.

With 7 goals in 9 appearances in the Ligue 1, Osimhen is the fourth-highest goalscorer in the top five European Leagues, behind Bayern Munich’s Lewandowski (11 goals), Manchester City’s Aguero and Chelsea’s Abraham (both with 8 goals).
