‘He is a complete striker’ – John Obi Mikel hails Victor Boniface’s quality



By Monsurah Olatunji

Former Chelsea midfielder, Mikel Obi, has showered praises on Bayer Leverkusen star Victor Boniface for his impressive form.
Boniface’s versatility as a striker and his goal-scoring ability have been standout features of his play. The 23-year-old has scored 16 goals and made eight assists as Leverkusen sits top of the Bundesliga table and top of their UEFA Europa League group.
Just as Victor Osimhen is one of the most sought-after strikers in Europe, the former Union Saint-Gilloise star has become one of the most recognizable and exciting forwards in Europe
And the former Super Eagles captain believes Boniface is going to be special and sees great prospect of him.
“What a talent he is,” Mikel Obi stated in his latest ObiOne Podcast.
“Everyone is going gaga about Victor Osimhen and deservedly so – he has done well and played well in the past seasons – but Boniface is another young kid coming out from bloc.
“People need to know who this kid is, he’s a complete striker. He still has room to improve, (but) he will become a complete striker in the next couple of years.
“He’s got the physique, is quick, and technically good on the ball. It is difficult to see strikers that big, physically big, strong, powerful, and then good on the ball,” he added.
“His assists, we first touched on that, his assists, not just scoring goals, and that’s what I think will make this kid special. I can’t wait to see what his journey will be in the next few years.”
