SSC Napoli – the club which Victor Osimhen has signed for absolutely one of the most popular, not only in Italy but also in all of Europe.
Firstly, Napoli is a fantastic city. Like every big city, it has some difficult neighborhoods, but it’s one full of historic places and with other fantastic areas. And the standout aspect is football: people live for this sport and respire it.
The city is full of shops which have at least t-shirts, a scarfs or flags of SSC Napoli for sale. Not forgetting the artisans who make the statuettes of the Napoli players.
One of the most important values of SSC Napoli is that people and supporters often get close to interact with the players and the coach.
As regards the quality of football played by the players and enjoyed by the fans, just two months ago Napoli won the Italian Cup against Juventus. It was the club’s first trophy in five years and six months. The last was the Supercoppa Italiana won in Decemeber 2014, and yet at the expense of Juventus.
For many players, the Italian Cup was their first title in the light-blue t-shirt. This last one year was very difficult for Napoli.
In April 2018, with coach Maurizio Sarri, they went really very close to winning the League, it was the highest moment in the history of the club after the years of Diego Armando Maradona at the club.
But the period of Carlo Ancelotti was very unfortunate and bad, for many reasons. Now with Gennaro Gattuso, the team is finding its identity again.
As we know, Victor Osimhen will be the new number 9. In Napoli, there is really a very good tradition of strikers: Denis, Cavani, Higuain and Mertens left the mark in the hearts of supporters, especially Cavani and Mertens.
From Mertens, Victor Osimhen could learn many things, because like Koulibaly, he is a leader and a guide for all the new players.
But Milik who Osimhen will replace, played well in four years here, but he was unlucky with some injuries. However, he scored an impressive 40 goals.
For the next season, Napoli can make a great comeback and become Champions. Maybe Juventus and Inter Milan could have something more, but Gattuso’s team can fight with Atalanta, Lazio, and Milan for the third and fourth places.Copyright © 2020 Completesports.com All rights reserved.
