      @ Mercy good point. You beat me to those very important point. Gatusso a charging lion like one possessed. Same goes with Osimene. That charging lion, fired up spirit make an ordinary footballer always a winner and makes a good footballer a much sort after star player. Quench the fire a star player becomes ordinary why an ordinary player becomes anything but dodo.

    Napoli has a plethora of creative players,and recently has improved tremendously coming tops against a team like Juventus speaks volume of there strength.

    Osimhen getting employed by a great team like Napoli should improve his overall quality.Apparently,playing and training daily with great superstars can only make him a better striker for club and country.

    I hope the deal pulls through,and we are looking forward to you achieving greater things in your new club.
