SSC Napoli of Italy striker, Victor Osimhen has received another round of lofty ratings, following a declaration by former Super Eagles’ winger, Emmanuel Amuneke that the youngster will grow in tactical strength and become a much better player in the Italian Serie A, megasportsarena.com reports.
Speaking against the backdrop of Osimhen’s apparent struggles to settle down to life in Italy, as he has scored just two goals for Napoli since his well-celebrated big money arrival from Lille Metropole of France, Amuneke reckoned that the youngster will soon settle down and start hitting things in triples.
Incidentally, it was Amuneke who coached Osimhen to limelight as handler of the Nigerian cadet team that won the 2015 FIFA U-17 World Cup in Chile, with the youngster emerging eternal top scorer in the competition’s history with ten goals to his name, such that the former Barcelona star should know what the lad can offer.
The 1994 Africa Footballer of The Year went on to declare that the former VfL Wolfsburg of Germany and Sporting Charleroi of Belgium hitman will cut his own niche in days to come, and refused to compare him with Didier Drogba, George Weah or Samuel Eto’o.
Amuneke told La Gazzetta dello Sport: “Osimhen is Osimhen. Each player has his own qualities. Weah, Drogba or Eto’o have done great things, the hope is that Victor can do them too. 4-2-3-1 is not a new formation for him, he often plays in the national team.
“Tactically he has grown, I said, but he can still grow, especially in Italy where it is a very important aspect. I played against Baggio who had immense talent and thanks to Serie A he became the champion he was. Here, I hope that Victor can take such a step and become a champion too.”
