Hamann: ‘Osimhen is the best centre forward in the world’

Former Liverpool midfielder says Nigerian better than Man City's Haaland

Former Liverpool, Man City and Bayern Munich defensive midfielder, Dietmar Hamann says Nigeria and Napoli forward, Victor Osimhen is the best centre forward in the world.

Osimhen has scored 23 goals in 28 appearances so far this season and his 19 in the league is propelling Napoli to their first Scudetto in 33 years while his four in five UEFA Champions League games has ensured the club qualified to play in the quarterfinal of the competition for the first time in its history.

Hamann who played 268 times in the Premier League for three clubs (Man City, Liverpool and Newcastle) believes Osimhen is a better player than free-scoring Norwegian, Erling Haaland who has scored 45 goals in 42 appearances for Man City across all competitions.

The German who featured in 283 games for Liverpool told BestGamblingSites the Nigerian is ‘probably a better all round player than Haaland right now and links up play better.’
‘Haaland is a very direct player and I was cautious whether he really fits into that Man City team.

‘He may prove me wrong at the moment, if you look at his goal scoring and stats, but they could still be trophyless at the end of the season.

‘I think he’s a player every top club should go for, because, for me at the moment Osimhen is the best centre forward in the world.’
