Super Eagles Star, Boniface Makes History, Becomes Third Nigerian to Win Bundesliga


Super Eagles of Nigeria and Bayer Leverkusen forward, Victor Boniface, has given praises to God for becoming a league champion in Germany. Bayer Leverkusen secured their first Bundesliga title on Sunday, April 14, with an emphatic 5-0 victory over Werder Bremen, breaking an 11-year stranglehold on the league by Bayern Munich.

Xabi Alonso’s team, which has now gone a league-record 29 matches without defeat this season to secure its first trophy since 1993, has a 16-point lead over Bayern with five matches remaining. Boniface scored and gave an assist in the Werder Bremen thrashing.

Reacting to the feat, Boniface took to his verified Facebook page to express his absolute delight. He wrote with an accompanying visual design of the new German champions:

“Na God run am.”

Boniface is one of two Nigerians playing for Leverkusen, with Nathan Tella also excelling at various points in the season. The duo became the third and fourth Nigerians to win the Bundesliga.

Recall that an abductor injury sustained just before the Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) 2023 ruled Boniface out of the tournament. Although the 23-year-old only joined Leverkusen in July 2023, he was instrumental to Xabi Alonso’s side’s title achievement with a goal contribution of 27G/A so far.

Reports are coming in that English club side, Chelsea has identified Boniface as a target for the summer. Mauricio Pochettino’s side has noted the Nigerian as a key target in their quest to bolster its forward options.
