Former Golden Eaglets striker Victor Osimhen has stated that he will patiently wait for his time to secure playing time with German Bundesliga side Wolfsburg.

Osimhen formerly signed his professional contract with the German side last year after he turned 18 years.

The young forward agreed to join the former German champions after he emerged the highest goalscorer at the FIFA U17 World Cup in 2015.

Since he joined Wolfsburg towards the end of last season he has not had a constant start with the first team.

Speaking to BBC on Sunday Osimhen said, “I have to be patient, work hard and wait for my chance.”

“I’m still new in European football and know that coming to Wolfsburg, I need time,” the 18-year-old said.

“I’ve learnt a lot, and I need to learn more. I remain confident that Wolfsburg is still the right place for my career.”

Meanwhile, Wolfsburg gaffer Martin Schmidt has said he is pleased with the performance of Osimhen.

According to him, “He is training very well and has scored many goals,” he said.

“He is the most effective runner and I hope to reward him.”

Osimhen was on target for the German side in their clash against Dutch side Utrecht at the Volkswagen Arena on Thursday in a friendly.
