Super Eagles and Napoli forward, 22-year-old, Victor Osimhen has shared his grass to grace story.
 
According to the star, he performed menial jobs in order to survive before his journey into professional football.
 
Osimhen is currently enjoying a good run of form for Serie A side Napoli where he has managed five goals from six appearances, has revealed he used to do menial jobs like cleaning gutters, fetching water to survive.
 
“Most people are familiar when I say this because they have come through even worse [situations] than mine and where I grew up, nothing is promised there because whatever you want to get, you have to work so hard for it,” he said as quoted by Head Topics.

“I remember when I was growing up, I was cleaning the gutters for 20 Naira, for my landlord and did some cleaning jobs for my neighbours close to my house, fetch water for 80 Naira, I think.

“I found pleasure in doing these things because I believed when I worked so hard to get this money, it was important for me. I had consciousness on how to spend this money and help my family.

“While growing up, my brother was selling newspapers, my sister oranges. I was in the traffic with water and I’d had to chase cars, give them water to get the money. I feel like these struggles helped me in life.

“I am grateful for where I am today because of what I’d been through, it shaped me into the man I am. I am really grateful to God for that.”


On his journey to stardom, the striker said: “It all started like a dream, a boyhood dream from the slum and I feel like I have achieved this feat, it’s one of my biggest achievements in life.”
