Still basking in the euphoria of his side 6-0 win over Genoa in Sunday Serie A clash, Napoli gaffer, Genaro Gattuso has described Victor Osimhen as the missing link in the club age-long chase for attacking and attractive football, Corrieredellosports can report
In an exclusive chat with Skysport after Napoli’s emphatic victory on Sunday, Gattuso maintained that Napoli dreams winning the scudetto would have been achieved long ago had the club signed on the Nigerian before now.
He then showered encomium on the former Lille striker for giving the coaching crew different tactical options since his arrival at the club, adding that the former Royal Charleroi has proffer solutions to his attacking headache of last season
” Osimhen is what has been missing in Napoli attack for years and it’s great to have him here.
“Lozano is improving before I had nothing against him: last year he wasn’t 100% mentally and physically.
“Osimhen gives you the possibility to play differently, he attacks depth well. : that’s why we’re trying to play 4-2-3-1,” Gattuso said after the match.
Osimhen is yet to open his Serie A goal accounts but the AC Milan legend believes it’s only a matter of time before the Nigerian comes good.
