Napoli’s Victor Osimhen was honored as the Italian Footballers’ Association Footballer of the Year in recognition of his exceptional contributions to the team’s success last season.
The award ceremony on Monday night celebrated various achievements, including distinctions for team of the year, coach of the year, club of the year, and goal of the season.
Osimhen’s remarkable tally of 26 goals played a pivotal role in Napoli securing their first Scudetto in 33 years, a feat that has garnered him nominations for prestigious awards such as FIFA Best and the Ballon d’Or.
He also earned a well-deserved place in the Serie A team of the year, standing alongside other notable players.
Despite encountering a challenging start to the 2023-24 campaign and grappling with recent injuries, Osimhen has maintained an impressive goals-per-game ratio.
After 14 games, he has notched six goals, showcasing his enduring impact on the field.
