Video: Osimhen meets teacher who helped kickstart career

Watch a touching video as Napoli superstar Victor Osimhen returns to Nigeria and meets the teacher who helped him become a professional football player.

The striker is back in Lagos and visiting his old haunts, meeting with the local kids who dream of following in his footsteps.

They too will need someone who supports their ambitions, just as Augustina Atanda did with little Osimhen when he was a child.

The teacher convinced Osimhen’s father that Victor should be allowed to move abroad and try to break into the football world.
