Victor Osimhen's girlfriend, Stefanie is one of the most beautiful Wags of Super Eagles stars.

Victor Osimhen recently sealed his name in the history books having helped Napoli to a historic third Scudetto title.

Osimhen’s goal against Udinese which confirmed Napoli as champions of Italy saw him become the African player to score the most goals in a Serie A season, surpassing Samuel Eto’o (21).

He also equalled the all-time goalscoring record by an African player in the history of the Serie A set by George Weah (46).

However, while Osimhen’s exploits on the pitch are currently making the headlines, the Nigerian striker who has a very active social media life loves to keep his relationship as private as possible.

The masked striker who is the second most-followed Nigerian footballer on Instagram has also given his reasons behind his decision to keep his relationship life away from the media.

Speaking in an interview with Italian outlet Il Mattino, Osimhen said he is protecting his loved ones from the insults rampant on social media.

He said: 

There is always someone who is ready to criticize, to pour out hatred, to insult, As long as they do it with me, it’s part of the game, you can even ignore it.

But I could never accept that someone could use abusive words towards my daughter or any of my family members.

I don’t want to suffer these attacks on my affections, that’s why I defend my family’s privacy from the attacks of those who hate and are capable of writing horrible things on social media.

I keep my private life to myself because it is not available to anyone.

However, one of the most asked questions about Osimhen’s private life is his relationship status.

But because the Super Eagles star has done a great job of shielding his partner and family from the media, details of his relationship has remained unknown for most of his football career.

In this article, Pulse Sports will review top facts you might not know about Osimhen’s girlfriend.
