Serie A: Napoli manager, Spalletti reveals Osimhen’s weakness

Osimhen vs Leicester City

Napoli manager, Luciano Spalletti, has revealed that the only weakness Victor Osimhen has, is his inability to operate in tight situations.

Osimhen has been in fine form for the Serie A leaders, following a disappointing start to the season, which saw him sent off against Venezia.

The Super Eagles striker has scored four goals in his last four appearances for both club and country.

The 22-year-old netted twice against Leicester City in last week’s Europa League fixture at the King Power to help Napoli complete a comeback and secure a point.

He also affirmed his quality on Monday as he poked in a lob from Insigne to score the opener in Napoli’s 4-0 demolition of Udinese in the Serie A.

However, whilst Spalletti praised Osimhen for his efforts, he feels that the former U-17 star still needs to improve.

“We have quality in attack,” Spalletti told DAZN.

“Osimhen is really strong, he lacks quality in tight spaces, but it’s hard to catch him in open spaces.”
