Napoli Can’t Win Scudetto Without Osimhen – Rossi

Former Lazio manager Delio Rossi has disclosed that it will be difficult for Napoli to win the Serie A title without Super Eagles striker, Victor Osimhen.

Osimhen, who is gradually recovering from his facial wounds, was spotted in training on Wednesday with his fellow teammates.


The Napoli forward was expected to be out of action for three months, but it has been only three weeks since he had surgery.

In his absence, Napoli has won just one of four matches in all competitions, with Il Partenopei dropping to third on the league table.

Reacting to this, Rossi in a chat with Tuttomercatoweb stated that Napoli can only win the Scudetto with Osimhen on the field of play.

“They all have the same possibilities. The championships are decided in March,” Rossi told Tuttomercatoweb via TuttoNapoli when asked name who would win the championship.

“Napoli lost Koulibaly and Osimhen, for a period they can compensate but in the long run, they can’t.

“We will have to see what happens to the other teams, which is why I say that everything will be decided in March.”

    Rossi said it all, it’s just like saying it will be difficult for the Super Eagles of Nigeria to win Afcon without Osimhen.

    He just said the bitter truth. This Napoli team lacks the cutting edge up front. It’s such a shame Oshimhen has been out for weeks and we can only hope he returns back to the pitch soon. Napoli needs to start picking points or else they should forget about winning the Italian Seria A. Get well soon Oshimhen, For now, I will rate you as the best striker to ever come of Nigeria.

  • @obest it’s obviously and imperatively no that Osimhen is the best striker ever emerge from Nigeria. He is yet to reach such height at present. It’s tomorrow that would determine it

    Apart from being a Naija man, watching Napoli without Victor Osimhen in the field of play does not motivate me at all.as a result,i stand by what Rossi said that without Victor Osimhen, Napoli will not clintch the Italian league because the young lad plays with his heart and I wish him a speedy recovery in Jesus name Amen!….
