Osimhen will do well at Napoli – Gernot Rohr speaks on the striker’s recovery from injury!

Super Eagles manager, Gernot Rohr has backed Victor Osimhen to do well at Napoli despite his recent injury woes at the club.

Victor Osimhen joined Napoli from French Ligue 1 side, Lille last summer with huge prospect but the Nigerian striker has had a torrid time with injuries and COVID-19.

However, Germot Rohr has thrown his weight behind the striker has he looks to get back to form in the colors of Napoli.

Victor Osimhen’s season has so far been unlucky, between injuries and COVID-19. Already in October he could not play with our national team for two games, in Austria, because he was in quarantine after some of his teammates at Napoli contracted COVID-19,”

“I spoke with the boy and he told me that he is physically and mentally fine. He is ready to return to the field with Napoli and also with the national team.

You will soon see his real value. In the national team he is our point of reference for the attack, he has collected an important legacy in that role from Odion Ighalo. In the next qualifying matches for the African Cup we hope to find him with great energy.

“Napoli are a great team but have been unlucky this season. (Gennaro) Gattuso is a good coach and Victor told me he trusts him a lot and what he’s teaching him.”
