Osimhen makes history, becomes first African to win top scorer award in Serie A 



Napoli striker,Victor Osimhen, has achieved an historic feat as the first African player to be crowned the Serie A top goalscorer.

The Nigerian international is also the first to combine that with the Scudetto since 2009.

Napoli won the title with five games to spare and with Lautaro Martinez, his closest rival, not finding the back of the net  on Saturday, Osimhen sealed his crown as the league’s top goal poacher.

Former Sweden international, Zlatan Ibrahimovic was the last player to combine both the Scudetto and the top scorer award for Inter Milan in 2008/09.

The striker is the fourth Capocannoniere for Napoli in the post-war period after Diego Maradona in 1987-88 (when Milan won the title), Edinson Cavani in 2012-13 and Gonzalo Higuain in 2015-16, both with Juventus taking the Scudetto.

Osimhen had already beaten George Weah’s record of 47 goals in the Italian top flight.
