I’m still looking forward to going back to the field.Victor Osimhen
The French top-flight division was suspended in March due to the coronavirus pandemic, with so much uncertainty surrounding the date of resumption.
Osimhen has admitted missing playing football, the fans, and communicating with his teammates and is eager to return to the field of play.
In an interview with Lille’s website, Osimhen said; “I’m still looking forward to going back to the field. You know, hearing the supporters singing, communicating with them, and with my teammates … I miss it all.
“This is important to us and I think the rest of my teammates are also eager to come back, like me. For the moment, we have to stay at home, confined, in good shape. Of course, I’m ready to replay immediately. I can’t wait to get back on the field.
The 21-year-old said he is doing everything possible to remain in good shape despite the lockdown.
“Everything is fine,” said Osimhen.
“I train, I stay in good physical shape. I follow the safety rules and I’m sure containment is the best thing to do right now.
“I am happy to follow the training plan given by the staff. I also do fitness classes. Everything is in place to keep in shape, but obviously it’s different from when you’re on the field with this group of players, this fantastic group. “
The former Wolfsburg striker was grateful to the Lille fans for their support during the season while admonishing them to stay safe
“Supporters, I would like to say thank you for your support during the season. I saw several messages from you on social networks. It is very motivating for us to have your support. Thank you again for everything, and above all, stay safe, follow the advice of doctors. Very soon everything will be back to normal. We can find you, share new moments together. Take care of yourself because you are very important to us! ,”he concluded.
Osimhen has had an outstanding season netting 13 goals and 5 assists in 27 games in league 1 before games were suspended due to the coronavirus outbreak.
