Osimhen is a complete striker – Spalletti

Osimhen

New Napoli boss, Luciano Spalletti, has hailed Victor Osimhen as a complete striker.

According to Spalletti, the Super Eagles star is a player who fights and knows how to score.

Spalletti is ready to work with Osimhen in Naples after he replaced Gennaro Gattuso at the end of last season.

During his maiden Serie A campaign, Osimhen scored 10 goals in 24 matches as the Parthenopeans finished fifth on the league table.

Ahead of the 2021-22 season which will begin with a home fixture against Venezia on August 21, the former Inter Milan and Roma coach disclosed that the 22-year-old needs to work on some areas of his game.

“He will certainly be a foothold for us and a strength of this team,” Spalletti told the club website. “He is a complete striker, he knows how to score and he knows how to fight for his teammates.

“It is clear that he also has aspects to improve and this is where we need to work, but it has already given great availability.”
