Ex-Napoli striker likens Osimhen to athletics legend


Victor Osimhen has never scored in a big game in the Serie A but is being backed to turn the fortunes around.

Former Napoli striker Andrea Carnevale has likened the Super Eagles attacker to athletics legend, Usain Bolt.

Ahead of Napoli’s game against Milan, Carnevale said the former Lille attacker is growing to become a leader at the club.

“Osimhen is becoming a leader, a certainty for Napoli,” he said.

“When he starts in speed he looks like Bolt but he is very strong even in the penalty area and he is showing it in his head shots because he has great timing, a situation where he can make the most of Politano and Insigne’s crosses.

“We are talking about two very strong attacks, Napoli have many alternatives and there are many strong attackers also in Milan and therefore the work of the defenses will be important: among the Rossoneri Romagnoli will be missing but there is Tomori whom I really like. he has something more at the level of the defensive department “.

Osimhen has scored seven goals this season in seventeen games.
