Napoli Needs 'Fully Fit' Osmhen To Win Serie A Title

Napoli captain Kalidou Koulibaly has hailed the progress of Nigeria forward Victor Omishen over the past 18 months.

Osimhen linked up with Napoli last summer after an impressive debut campaign in the French top-flight with Lille.

The 22-year-old however struggled to justify his huge price tag, failing to hit top form for the Blies.

The young forward spent time on the sidelines after copping injury on international duty , and also had to stay in isolation for few days after contracting coronavirus.

The Nigeria international has however hit another gear this season with nine goals in 14 outings across all competitions.

Koulibaly has now rated Osimhen one of the key strikers in Serie A.

The Senegal defender told DAZN: “If I were to make a biopic about Victor Osimhen, I would tell about his first year which was very difficult. Nobody expected that he would get to the level of today, but he still has a lot to give and he will still show a lot of things both this season and in the future,

“He is a very calm, humble boy and even makes you laugh. He plays a lot of jokes, especially on (Kostas) Manolas, then after the goals he dances with (Lorenzo) Insigne: he is a extraordinary person, I want to help him in his growth because he deserves it.

“He always makes himself available to everyone, I tell him chapeau.

“(Luciano) Spalletti pushes him a lot, as soon as he arrived he immediately told him what he was doing well and what not. But it was (Rino) Gattuso who helped him a lot, too. Last year gave him a lot of confidence. Then Spalletti completed the work by helping him a lot, this combination bears fruit today.”
