Ex-Italy Striker Toni: Osimhen Reminds Of Shevchenko

Former Italy striker Luca Toni has labelled Victor Osimhen a devasting striker and believes the Nigerian striker can score 25 goals in the Serie A this season, reports Completesports.com.

The 22-year-old has been in impressive form for Napoli this season after struggling to make much impact at the club last term.

The forward has scored four goals in six league appearances for the Partenopei this season.

“Before he arrived in Italy, I didn’t know him well. I find him much improved from last year and I think it thanks to Spalletti, who is very demanding,” Toni told Corriere della Sera.

“In speed, then he’s devastating. He reminds me of Andriy Shevchenko for the way he varies in attack and for his great speed.

“Only he and (Tammy) Abraham can guarantee 25 goals in Serie A.”

    A very complete player who plays for his team. Osimhen is not just the lay back kind of striker rather he works himself horse to deliver. Nigeria is blessed.

    That boy is good player, from Benin is good he scores goals always and it is intetesting. Myself, Chief Adefemi, Sura and Junaid watched him play when they visited me but Nepa took light and before the gen came on, the game ti lo. Sura said, Chief you can discuss here then I am happy this is possible. It is not easy to stay at home when the children use phone and chatting. If the sport paper can come and give my copies any day, it will be good or I will use my phone. God bless our children doing football and our country Nigeria.

      Omo dada. The Nigerian player is well balanced and has good coordination while rolling on the ball. His techniques and ball control has no spare pair. He dribbles, passes accurately with the speed to tear through any defence. He just needs to continue working on his game.

    Osimhen is on the tongues and souls of every football fan at the moment and should keep it up.
    It was Spalleti who said sometime ago that Osimhen put up an outstanding performance for the Parthenopeans, as he scored a goal in each half to help Napoli secure a 4-0 win at the Stadio Luigi Ferraris where his side piped Sampdoria. The one said by Fabiano really got me reeling. The Nigerian deserves the World best striker if there is any award like that or at the modest least, African footballer of the year going by his contributions to his club and our national team.

    • That’s true. I will be disappointed in CAF if he is not named African most valuable player this year.
