Victor Osimhen has been named the Italian Footballers’ Association (AIC) Player of the Year for the Serie A season 2022/23.

On Monday evening, the 24-year-old Nigerian won the Gran Gala del Calcio in Milan.

AIC, the organization that protects and assists professional footballers in Serie A, B, Lega Pro, and women’s football, organized the award.

Osimhen was also named to the top 11 in Serie A for the 2022/23 season.

Mike Maignan, Theo Hernandez, Giovanni Di Lorenzo, Alessandro Bastoni, Kim Min Jae, and Stanislav Lobotska are also on the team of the year.
