The Assistant Captain of the Super Eagles and Watford defender, William Troost Ekong has referred to the iconic story of Victor Osimhen's move from selling N20 water in Lagos traffic into becoming African most expensive footballer as an inspiring one.

The light-skinned Eagles' Assistant Captain (Ekong) stated this on his verified Facebook handle after sharing the video clip of himself interviewing the high-flying Napoli and Super Eagles striker.

Ekong who displayed his journalism skills in the video explained how he has been maintaining a good relationship with Osimhen since the first time they met at the 2019 AFCON. I told him to keep calm and wait for his time, Ekong explained.

In turn, Osimhen revealed to Ekong how he used to clean gutters for his Lagos Landlord for just N80, and how he also used to sell N20 water in Lagos traffic seven years ago.
