Can Victor Osimhen win Ballon d’Or?

Nigeria head coach Jose Peseiro believes Victor Osimhen can win the Ballon d’Or in future.

Osimhen is among the 30 players nominated for the 2023 men’s Ballon d’Or.

While it would be difficult for the 24-year-old to win the prestigious award this year, going by the calibre of the players on the list, Peseiro is optimistic he will emerge tops in future.

“He (Osimhen) can surely win the Ballon d’Or in the future. He’s not lacking anything to do it,” Peseiro said in an interview with Italian publication II Mattino in an interview.

“He has different characteristics than other players that are at the top at this moment, but he scores a lot as well.”

The forward has also been nominated for the FIFA Best Men’s award.
