“This victory belongs to all of us! The journey to this huge victory hasn’t always been smooth sailing, but it’s the ups and downs that have shaped us into the champions we are today! We turned every moment of adversity, setbacks, and tough defeats into more motivation, hunger, and determination to keep fighting hard.
“The fans lifted us, kept encouraging us, and reminding us of the greatness we were capable of achieving. Not only that, I emerged as the best striker of the Serie A 2022-2023 season, which makes me the first African player ever to win the golden boot in league history and the first player to combine this achievement with the Scudetto since 2009. This gives me so much joy and I am incredibly humbled to have achieved this.
“To my fans worldwide, I see you all! The support, the motivation, and the love, I am super grateful. You all have always honoured me and I am proud to be a Nigerian. Thank You For The Unforgettable Journey. God Is The Greatest.”
