Earlier, Sports Brief had reported how Victor Osimhen has been doing excellently well this season for Napoli in the Serie A getting them goals. However, not many knew that the 24-year-old started his career as a goalkeeper.

The Nigerian explained that he later stopped keeping and then became a defender before he became a striker.
