Napoli Forward Mertens: ‘Smart Lad’ Osimhen Always Willing To Learn

Napoli Forward Mertens: ‘Smart Lad’ Osimhen Always Willing To Learn

Napoli forward Dries Mertens has praised teammate Victor Osimhen because he ‘wants to listen and learn,’ Completesports.com reports.

Osimhen made a huge impact coming off the bench in Thursday night’s 3-0 win against Danish club Brondby.

The Nigeria international scored Napoli’s second goal and showed he can also play with Mertens.

The 22-year-old has now scored four goals in three appearances in the Europa League this season.

“Osimhen arrived last season and had a few difficulties settling, he also had injury problems, so I tried to help him. He’s a smart lad who wants to listen and learn. I give him all the love in the world!, Mertens told Sky Sport Italia.

Napoli have a 100 per cent record in Serie A so far this season, is this the best squad Mertens has played in at the Stadio Diego Armando Maradona?

“We’ll see. Comparisons with the past are not helpful. I like to play as a centre-forward, but also supporting.”

    His photos always gives him away as a focused lad. The gangling Nigerian is going places.

    But Napoli midfielders love to shoot instead of passing to him when in good position. He hustles on his own to score. If he were in a team like leceister whr the midfielders are selfless he would have score up to 20goals by now

      You are right bro. Those guys are something else, they can shoot down flying bird. Last season na wingers, dis season na midfielders own too much..lol. D coach need to caution dem..

  • Edoman 3 years ago

    Everybody wants to score his own goal. Very selfish people. Don’t want to play as a team.

    Good day folks,
    The sky is just the beginning for Osimhen as far as he keeps learning, listening to advice on areas where he can improve his all round game. I wish him all the best.

    …but come to think of it have you guys noticed that there is hardly any story(article) on complete sports these days that does not have one error, wrong grammar or something. An example from the above is this below;

    “Osimhen made a huge impact coming off the bench in Thursday night’s 3-0 win against Danish club Brondby”.

    Se na ‘Brondby’ Napoli play against or ‘Legia Warsaw’. As a kid, in the eighties, there was no edition of Complete Football that my Dad or big brothers will not buy and pass down for me to read and I enjoyed reading from the likes of Mumuni Alao, Sunny Obazu-Ojeagbase (I hope i got that name right) and the likes. As a primary school pupil back then, those were some of the ways i learned English language informally (reading Complete Football/Complete Sports, AM and PM Newspapers). As someone who was privileged to have known this establishment from those days, I dare say that I am pretty disappointed with the wishy washy writing, error laden write-ups I see on here lately. I think this is something the management of this great company should address quickly. Information they say is power and misinformation can be equally dangerous.

    I rest my case

    • Learn when to use lowercase and uppercase. Your punctuation is sicknen.

      Knowledge (not information) is power, while information gains power through permanent storage and wide distribution.

      YOU: “As a kid, in the eighties, there was no edition of Complete Football that my Dad or big brothers will not buy and pass down for me to read and I enjoyed reading from the likes of Mumuni Alao, Sunny Obazu-Ojeagbase (I hope i got that name right) and the likes.”

      ME: Read through again and make some corrections.

        @Henry;

        I don’t run a news website bro. If I was a reporter, I will sure edit my stories well before putting them out.

        Thank you

    • Good observation. Thanks for your efforts in making a case for the readership.

  • Master 3 years ago

    Ok

  • He will lecture us is possibly typing on another article right now. So, guys don’t expect any response. I could be wrong anyway.

    • Coachie 3 years ago

      Don’t make assumptions about people you don’t even know.

  • Gapsyrun 3 years ago

    He is their English teacher is actually typing with another handle elsewhere but in a careful mode. Otherwise, he is reading this thread n wondering.

    • Coachie 3 years ago

      @Gapsyrun;
      C’mon bro, I don’t go looking out for people’s error to call them out. Typos, syntax and punctuation errors can happen when you comment on stories in any forum but as a print media journalist haba, CS suppose dey check and edit their stories well before pushing dem into the public space. The misinformation is beginning to happen too often.

  • Ernest dodge 3 years ago

    English teacher hardly mention Nigeria in his “write-ups”. SE is a well accepted acronym. What about good luck Nigeria?

  • Biodun 3 years ago

    Teacher is writing a-hundred line for completesports of Nigeria but no mention of Nigeria for the love of his country. He is intelligent. Another handle will reply you soon, guys, wait n see.
