Ex-Napoli Star  Labels Osimhen One Of World’s  Best Strikers

Former Napoli star Cristian Bucchi says Victor Osimhen is one of the best strikers in the world.

Osimhen scored 26 goals in 32 appearances to help Napoli win the Scudetto for the first time in over three decades last season.

Despite being hampered by injuries this season and missing around a month early this year due to international duty, the forward has scored 12 goals and provided three assists in 19 league appearances for the reigning Serie A champions.

Bucchi expressed his admiration for Osimhen because of his extraordinary attributes and attitude on the pitch.

“Osimhen, for me, is one of the best strikers in the world, because he brings together extraordinary physical characteristics: speed, elevation, excessive power,” he said, per Napoli Magazine.

“Over the years he has grown a lot, he scores a lot of goals, he weighs a lot in terms of the number of goals and is therefore decisive.

” Lastly, it is the attitude: I am someone who observes a lot, I take clips of the attitudes of the players, especially the most important ones. Every time there is a pass for Osimhen he turns and claps his hands with his teammate, one of the most beautiful things ever.

“Osimhen is a champion today and if he shows himself with humility and at the service of the team, he will encourage the rest of the team. I don’t know if he will stay in Naples, but he is certainly among the 5 best in the world.”

    Bucci is well on point. Personally, I felt somewhat awkward when the prolific striker was rated as World number8. To me, that’s clearly unacceptable bcos Osimhen’s performance is way above8. Yeah! World5 is close to it but i think he should be between World number1-3, just my honest opinion devour of sentiment.
