Victor Osimhen is once again under the spotlight after failing to score in yet another big game in the Italian Serie A after Napoli was forced to a 1-1 draw by Inter Milan.
Prior to the game, the spotlight was on Osimhen not doing enough in big games since his record-breaking move to Napoli two years ago. That debate was once again ignited after the game against Inter on Saturday.
Although Osimhen won the penalty that was converted by Lorenzo Insigne in the 7th minute for the opening goal of the game. After the game, Napoli coach, Luciano Spalleti, was asked about the performance of the Nigerian.
The coach reckoned that although he did well, he needs to improve in certain areas of his game, which includes realizing that he can’t do it all alone on his own. “He had a good race. He’s strong, he has an excitement, there is no need to go down a single road, you can use a lot of them to exploit him,” he said.
“It’s clear that if he goes far alone, we’re not in a position to support him. However, it is part of his exuberance, of his strength. A player who will surely be a champion in the future,” he concluded.
