Bayer Leverkusen's Victor Boniface and Nathan Tella Form Bromance

The Bundesliga has witnessed the emergence of a new dynamic duo at Bayer Leverkusen – Victor Boniface and Nathan Tella. These two promising talents have not only ignited the pitch with their skills but have also become fast friends, as revealed by Boniface in an exclusive interview with BOUNCE SPORTS.


Both players made their way to Bayer Leverkusen during the summer transfer window and have quickly become integral members of Xabi Alonso’s squad, making waves in the current season.


In a heartwarming video shared on Bayer Leverkusen’s official Twitter handle earlier this month, Victor Boniface and Nathan Tella were spotted celebrating together after their team’s impressive 5-1 victory over Darmstadt. The caption read, “Admin Approves of an Incoming Bromance 🇳🇬🇬🇧.”



Speaking exclusively with BOUNCE SPORTS, Victor Boniface shed light on the budding friendship with Tella, saying, “He’s a new player in the team, and he’s also Nigerian, so I try my possible best to make him comfortable in the team. I’m just getting to know him better, but everything has been good between both of us.”


At just 22 years old, Victor Boniface has taken the Bundesliga by storm, establishing himself as a formidable striker. His remarkable performance includes an impressive record of four goals and two assists in the current season. Boniface was also honored as the 2022–23 UEFA Europa League top scorer, a testament to his goal-scoring prowess.


Tella, on the other hand, arrived at Bayer Leverkusen for a reported fee of 23 million euros ($25 million), making him the club’s most expensive signing of a busy summer transfer window. The 24-year-old versatile forward or winger had a successful stint with Burnley in the English Championship in the 2022–23 season, netting 17 goals from 39 appearances.


Born in Stevenage, United Kingdom, to Nigerian parents, Tella has a unique international eligibility, allowing him to choose between representing the Super Eagles of Nigeria and the Three Lions of England. When asked about potentially convincing Tella to join the Nigerian national team, Boniface emphasized that the decision should be Tella’s alone.



“I’m not concerned about where he wants to play. He has his choice to choose whoever he wants to play for,” Boniface stated.


As Victor Boniface continues to shine in the Bundesliga, he is currently gearing up with the Super Eagles of Nigeria, eagerly anticipating the upcoming match against São Tomé and Príncipe. The nation’s football enthusiasts are excited to see the chemistry between Boniface and Tella on display for both club and country, as they embark on their journeys in German football and international football, respectively.
