How I saved My Family from Poverty – Nigerian Footballer Osimhen


Super Eagles striker Victor Osimhen has narrated how his emergence as a professional footballer saved his family members from difficulties.

The Nigerian striker, who plays for Lille in Ligue 1, said life was tough for his siblings after his mother’s death and father’s joblessness.

According to him, his father lost his job three months after his mother died.

To survive, Osimhen said his brother hawked sports newspapers, while sister sold oranges in the street.

The 20-year-old player also said he earlier sold bottled water in Lagos traffic to help his family survive.

But after emerging as a successful footballer, Osimhen said his family members are now living the life they deserved.

Though he didn’t state how large his family members live at present, Osimhen said his father and siblings now have enough to eat.
