Osimhen Explains why he chose the Number 7 Jersey at Lille


Super Eagles Striker, Victor Osimhen has come out to reveal why he chose the Number 7 Jersey when he joined the French Side.

The Number was previously worn by Mbappe and Rafael Leao, and the prolific attacker has stepped in the big shoes of past players who has worn the Jersey Number.

“When they first presented the numbers that they had, I went for the seven because the player (Rafael Leão) is a very good player and he has a lot of talent,” Osimhen said.


“They asked me why I chose the number and I said I really wanted it because that’s what my mind chose”. 

“When I picked the number I presented it to God also, He’s the Alpha and Omega. Of course you can see everything is really going well”.

“After my debut Rafael messaged me on Instagram and we had a chat about the club and I really wished him well wherever he is and he’s wishing me well also, and he’s my very good friend”.
