Selling Osimhen A Mistake — Ex-Wolfsburg Chief

Here Is The Easy Money-Making Trick Everyone Is Talking About! Learn More Here!

Former Wolfsburg sporting director, Jorg Schmadtke has admitted he made a big mistake selling Victor Osimhen during his time at the club.

Schmadtke, who is set to take over at Liverpool as their new sporting director took the decision to sell the Nigeria international to Belgium club, Sporting Charleroi in 2018.

Osimhen didn’t manage to score a single goal in 16 outings for Wolfsburg before he was shipped out on loan to Belgium.

There, Osimhen flourished with 20 goals in all competitions during the 2018/19 campaign.

A permanent move was then quickly on the cards as Charleroi activated their £3m option to sign him. Osimhen would be on the move once more just weeks later as Lille swooped with a £19m deal.

A move to Napoli followed a year where Osimhen blossomed to one of the strikers in the world.

Reflecting on the decision, Schmadtke stated it was a mistake which he now regret.

“It wasn’t a good move, in hindsight. When I came, he [Osimhen] was limping and running in circles,”he told Kicker.

“I was told that the strikers we had weren’t good enough. The most important lesson is that you have to be patient with some transfers.”
