Ex-Napoli Forward Bucchi: Osimhen Will Become Big Star In Future

Former Napoli forward Cristian Bucchi believes Victor Osimhen will become a big star for the Partenopei in future, reports Completesports.com.

Osimhen joined Napoli in a big move from Ligue 1 outfit Lille last summer but struggled in his first few months at the club.

The 22-year-old spent over two months on the sidelines after picking up a shoulder injury on international duty with Nigeria.

The forward’s return to action was also delayed after he tested positive to Covid-19 early this year.

He has however hit top form in recent weeks with six goals and one assist in his last 10 appearances for the Blues.

“Osimhen, compared to Higuaín, arrived in Naples younger,
physically superior, technically inferior, but has ample room for improvement to grow further,” Bucchi said during his appearance on Punto Nuovo Sport Show.

“This season he paid for the many injuries and Covid-19.”
