Napoli manager Gennaro Gattuso has defended Victor Osimhen after the forward struggled once again in Thursday night’s Europa League defeat at Granada.
The Partenopei lost the game 2-0 by a pair of goals in the space of two minutes, as Kenedy first created one with his cross for Yangel Herrera’s header, then scored with an angled drive.
“Victor Osimhen is still struggling to make any kind of impact, while Lorenzo Insigne was visibly limping during the game,” Gattuso told Football Italia.

“As I already said, Osimhen was out for a long time, he’s still playing with strapping to his shoulder and is not 100 per cent. He needs to find consistency and sharpness to play his game. At the moment, he has these gaps and isn’t capable of moving consistently, as we’ve seen it in the statistics.
“I think this team came here and did the maximum it was capable of at this moment in time.”
The second leg will take place next week Thursday at the Stadio Diego Armando Maradona.Fastest Paying Betting Site in Nigeria: Grab your 140% First Time Deposit Bonus Now — www.Sportybet.Com Copyright © 2021 Completesports.com All rights reserved.
