Nigerian International, Victor Osimhen has again broken another record to become the first African player to win the Serie A top goalscorer award.
The Napoli striker is as well the first to win the Scudetto with highest scorer award, since 2009.
His club, FC Napoli lifted the Scudetto with five games to end the season. The last player to combine both is Zlatan Ibrahimovic, with Inter Milan in 2008/09.
After Diego Maradona with Milan, Edinson Cavani and Gonzalo Higuain, Osimhen, who had already beaten George Weah’s record of 47 goals in the Italian top flight, is now the fourth Capocannoniere for Napoli.
