The young striker who revealed this in an interview recently posted by the club on Twitter, Osimhen said Drogba is someone he looks up to ever since he knew him.

“Drogba is someone I look up to. A man asked me who I played like and I said I didn’t know. He asked me to go to YouTube and check out Drogba and that was where I fell in love with the kind of player and man he is. He has added a lot to my game that is helping me out till today,” he said.

“My dream is to become the African Footballer of the Year, and I think I still have a long way to go in achieving that dream. I’m really working towards that direction and I think I’m on the right path,” he said.
