Nigerian striker Victor Osimhen has opened up about his admiration for fellow forward Erling Haaland, who currently plays for Manchester City. Osimhen, who has been in fine form for Italian side Napoli, said that he and Haaland share a mutual respect for each other’s game.

In an interview with an Italian news outlet, Osimhen revealed that he has already swapped shirts with Haaland through his Napoli teammate Leo Ostigard. Ostigard spoke highly of Haaland’s work ethic and training regime, and offered to bring Osimhen his shirt.

“I said, ‘Of course, bro,'” Victor Osimhen said. “So he spoke to Haaland, who also asked for my shirt, so we swapped them through Ostigard.”

“Haaland is one of the best of his generation, so to be compared with him only inspires me to do more,” Osimhen said.
