Nigerian striker Victor Boniface has received praise from the Confederation of African Football (CAF) and former Super Eagles coach Sunday Oliseh for his pivotal role in Bayer Leverkusen’s groundbreaking Bundesliga triumph.

Bayer Leverkusen clinched their maiden Bundesliga title, ending Bayern Munich’s 11-year reign, with a commanding 5-0 victory over Werder Bremen. Boniface played a starring role in the historic win, opening the floodgates with a goal.
