Gattuso Warns Napoli Fans Over Osimhen Expectation

Gattuso Warns Napoli Fans Over Osimhen Expectation

Gennaro Gattuso has warned Napoli fans not to get over-excited after Victor Osimhen’s debut hat-trick on Friday, Completesports.com reports.

Osimhen marked his first game for Napoli with a hat-trick inside eight against fourth division club L’Aquila.

The game was Napoli’s second pre-season game after they had earlier thrashed Castel di Sangro 10-0. Osimhen was not in action against Castel di Sangro.

But Gattuso has warned fans of the club not to put pressure on the €80m signing from Lille.

“It’s too easy to get excited now, we’ve got to give him time and let him work, not put pressure on,” the 2006 World Cup winner told Radio Kiss Kiss and Sky Sport Italia.

“He is an important player and we paid a lot for him, but there were no doubts he would give us something different that we haven’t had in my time here. There’s a long way to go.

“It’s not like we suddenly signed Pele or Maradona, we simply brought in a player with certain characteristics that can help us.”

Gattuso led Napoli to the Coppa Italia title last season after they shocked Juventus on penalties.

    Well he’s aware that the man he and Napoli just bought into their is something more. And would love it that people don’t give him do much pressure . Oshimen is getting to that level where he can be lined amongst the greatest players in the world .

     
  • Thanks mr Gatuzo I love ur spirit,it is better to go where they need you than where you need,@osimgoal go and shine go and beat those records that Etoo has now,

     
  • Good coach, smart word’s dont set the bar too high so when osimhen eventually explodes in serie A, you can say he exceeded your expectations.
