Napoli boss hails Victor Osimhen as he scores winner over Pro Vercelli! Video

Napoli’s coach, Luciano Spalletti has hailed Victor Osimhen for his tactical adaptability and efficiency in front of goal.

Victor Osimhen scored his fifth preseason goal as Napoli defeated series side, Pro Vercelli as they continue their preparation for the new season.

The Super Eagles striker who scored four goals in the previous match added to his tally as he secured another win for the Naples-based club via a 26th-minute header.

While commenting on his performance, Spalletti said Osimhen can change the situation of a match by creating opportunities via his high press.

“Osimhen has the ability to change any situation into an opportunity. Obviously, this running around and continually making himself available to press, it does affect his sharpness in front of goal and can lead to errors.”

The Super Eagles striker, with his preseason performance so far, is in pole position to lead Napoli’s attack going into the new season.

The 22-year-old who spent most parts of last season on the sidelines and self-isolation(COVID-related) scored 10 goals in 24 league games last season.
