Former U17 World Youth Championship top scorer Macauley Chrisantus has advised Victor Osimhen to consider leaving German side Wolfsburg for the sake of his career growth.
Osimhen has struggled to nail a permanent shirt in the team of Wolfsburg since turning professional over a year ago, but Chrisantus isn’t bothered about his lack of game time rather the constant managerial changes going on at the club.
Martin Schimdt left the German side yesterday after a little over two months at the helm as replacement for former Arsenal Academy coach Andries Jonker who started the season as coach of the team.
Since turning professional, Osimhen has worked under four coaches in just over a year, and Chrisantus reckons that was same experience he suffered at Hamburg when he joined the team at around same age like Osimhen.
” The constant change in managers won’t help the progress of Osimhen. I endured same at Hamburg and it’s a case of starting afresh when a new manager comes in. And as a youngster the process of winning the trust of your new coach puts you under undue pressure”, Chrisantus told Owngoalnigeria.com.
” I will advice him to leave Wolfsburg, if the situation doesn’t get any better. I left Hamburg a bit late and that’s why I’m still struggling to get back to my old self. It would be better if he considers leaving Wolfsburg “, he concluded.
Now at Spanish third division side Real Murcia, the 27 year old forward told Owngoalnigeria.com in an interview on the 12th of September 2016 that he wasted six years of his career at Hamburg. He appears to have found his bearing with one goal to his name from three games for promotion chasing Murcia.
