Victor Osimhen still waiting for his chance at VFL Wolfsburg

Victor Osimhen

When Victor Osimhen signed for Wolfsburg earlier this year, it was based on a commitment to gradually integrate in to the team. Despite his huge talent , Osimhen is yet to see action.

The reason for his inability to wear the wonderful colors of Wolfsburg is based on one factor alone-lack of chance.

Wolfsburg has seen officials sacked faster then the speed of light. Valerien Ismael, who was the coach when Osimhen was signed last season, is no longer there. Andries Jonker, who barely saved Wolfsburg from relegation last season was recently fired. The sports director who gave the green light for Osimhen to sign for Wolfsburg, Klaus Allofs was sacked. Martin Schmidt is the new coach in Wolfsburg.

Given the changes that Wolfsburg have experienced in 9 months, it is difficult for Osimhen to convert the confidence garnered through months of training and discipline to any successful conclusion. Because he had to start all over again with a new coach. Osimhen made it to the bench for three matches so far this season.

Recently, Mario Gomez of Wolfsburg was injured and out for at least a month. His position became available. However, the following players, including Osimhen, were contesting for the position. They are Landry Dimata, Paul-Geroges Ntep and Kaylen Hinds.

Despite the circumstances, Osimhen has taken it in stride and hopes for a better day. Who knows, if he finally get his chance to play for Wolfsburg, may be he could soar like a super eagle.
