Former Wolfsburg coach Martin Schmidt has expressed confidence Victor Osimhen will settle quickly at Napoli but needs to work more on the tactical aspect of his game.
Osimhen, 21, who is set to sign for Napoli this summer, joined Wolfsburg in January 2017 but only played 16 games for the Bundesliga side before moving to Belgian club RSC Charleroi.
Osimhen arrived from Belgium to Ligue 1 last summer and has impressed in France, but Schmidt doesn’t seem surprised.
And speaking ahead of the move, Schmidt feels the Nigerian forward has matured and will be ready for the challenge ahead in Naples.
“Victor is a good player, very good in pressing,” Schmidt told Radio Kiss Kiss Napoli.
“He’s aggressive, he finishes well, he has great quality. He has strength in duels too.
“His mentality and passion fit well with Napoli’s philosophy. Maybe he needs to improve his tactics.
“I know tactics are very important in Italian football. He’s a great athlete, very fast, plays with both feet, but he still has some potential to develop tactically.
“Yes, I think he has matured. His mentality will help him settle quickly. His mentality and passion will help him.”
