“He’s still missing the sprint, his main skill, but he’s progressing gradually. He can do much more.”

    Sad to say, but Osimhen soon look like a bust, only 2 goals and 13 starts for a 70 million player. If he don’t rack up the pressure gonna be on him.

Napoli didn’t spend money just to move to 5th from 7th. Some credible analyst had Napoli finishing 1st because of Osimhen joining, because Napoli was good defensively and needed a scorer. But now they are questioning him. I know its hard transitioning from Super eagles getting a broken arm then going back to club. I don’t think anything is helping
