Galtier : Osimhen Is Lille’s New Talisman

Lille manager Christophe Galtier says he will continue to rely on Victor Osimhen for goals this season following  the forward’s positive  start to his career with the club, reports Completesports.com.

Osimhen has enjoyed a comfortable  start to his career with the Lille  following his summer arrival from  Belgian outfit, Sporting Charleroi.

The Nigeria international  has scored six goals in eight league appearances  for Les Dogues  this season.

He opened his UEFA Champions  League goal account for the club in Wednesday’s  2-1 defeat to Chelsea.

Lille lost their two important forwards; Nicolas  Pepe and Rafeal Leao  to Arsenal and AC Milan this but Osimhen has made the club’s  supporters forget the duo with his impressive  performance.

” You asked me the same question last year with Nico (Pépé) All teams are dependent on one or two players, so in all clubs we say we need an attacker We have Victor ,”Galtier responded to question on Lille’s overdependence on Osimhen during a press conference  on Saturday.

Lille will host Nimes  in their next French Ligue  1 clash at home on Sunday.
