The reason why Victor Osimhen is not at their level yet

This week, Darwin Nunez and Erling Haaland both sealed their mega transfers to the two best football teams in England.Darwin Nunez and Haaland are both young strikers, and Osimhen belongs in that circle too, but why is he not as highly rated as Nunez and Haaland?

Napoli and Nigerian football fans will argue that Victor Osimhen belongs to the same class as Erling Haaland and Darwin Nunez. However, he doesn’t get as much credit as they do. Why?

Darwin Nunez and Erling Haaland have announced themselves at the biggest stage of all, the UEFA Champions League.

Haaland’s breakout season wasn’t even with Dortmund. It was with RB Salzburg after he started scoring regularly in the Champions League with the Austrian club.

Darwin Nunez also had a superb year in the Champions League last season. Scoring 6 goals and having impressive performances against big clubs like Barcelona and Liverpool.

The Nigerian striker has not had the chance to shine in the UEFA Champions League yet. Since joining Napoli in 2020, he has not played in the Champions League for the Naples club.

Osimhen will get more plaudits/praise, and better suitors in the transfer market when he performs on the biggest stage which is the UEFA Champions League. Napoli will have the opportunity to play in the UEFA Champions League next season, hopefully the Nigerian striker will explode on the UCL stage.
