Gattuso: Osimhen Must Keep Working Hard Despite Good Start At Napoli

Napoli manager Gennaro Gattuso has demanded that Victor Osimhen stay grounded despite his impressive start to life at the club, reports Completesports.com.

Osimhen continued his impressive pre-season form for the Serie A club by netting a hat-trick in Friday’s 4-0 win against Teramo.

The Nigeria international scored three goals and bagged an assist in Napoli’s first pre-season friendly against fourth division club L’Aquilla last week.

The 21-year-old has now scored six goals in two appearances for the Blues.

Gattuso however wants his new striker to keep working hard ahead of the new season.

“Osimhen needs to keep working hard and never to be satisfied, these goals count for nothing,”Gattuso stated after the game.

” What’s important is that he’s already integrated into the group, joking and laughing with all his teammates.”

Napoli have lined up two more friendlies against Pescara and Sporting Lisbon before the start of the season.

Gattuso’s men will travel to Parma for their opening fixture of the 2020/21 season on September 20.

  • I’m  impressed. He is a great player to represent the super eagles.

    Honestly, Gattuso’s won me over with his openness/humanity. Just the kinda person you can trust to be fair.

    • I agree with you @Glory”Osimhen needs to keep working hard and never be satisfied,these goals count for nothing”.He is very realistic.He knows that the real show is when the serie A begins along with other matches where goals matter.I pray Osimhen truly explodes with goals and victories this season and beyond.

  • I love the attitude of the coach… Our boy can only get better with this type of mentorship… I watched all the replays on YouTube, Osimhen is on fire and his teammates already seem to love him

  • I just watched the highlight. I think Napoli is a God ordained destination for Osimhen at this particular time. He has settled in so well and his team mates are showering him with lots of love. One would think he has been with the team for 3 years while he’s just been there about three weeks ago. May the Lord bless this lad real good as we wish him a completely injury free season and a career transforming year.

    Environment is key regarding growth in all dimensions of life. I pray he will keep receiving more love and favour from his team mates. Our days of winning multiple APOTYs again is speedily approaching by God’s grace, with the caliber of players in our hands in the Super Eagles. Keep shining Osimhen.
