Red-hot SSC Napoli of Italy and Super Eagles of Nigeria striker Victor Osimhen in a recent interview claimed Bayern Munich star, Sadio Mane has been a source of inspiration to him, Nigeriasoccernet.com gathered.

Osimhen who scored twice on Wednesday as Napoli reached their first ever UEFA Champions League quarterfinal said the Senegalese star's contribution to the growth in his native of Senegal is heart touching but choose to take another direction inspired by the former Liverpool man.

“I am inspired by Sadio Mane, but I have a different goal compared to his," Osimhen said.

"He is building infrastructure for the community of Senegal. That is awesome, but for me I want to help disable challenged people across Africa. I will always do my best to help where I can help.

"I am in the process of opening headquarters in Africa that will help to achieve this goal. If you don't have a leg, we will create a new one for you. If it's an arm, we will create a new one for you. We want them to feel equal to everyone. We work for Africa,” He concluded.

Osimhen has been a talk of transfer speculations since January as his goal-scoring form have linked him with several top clubs across Europe.
