Osimhen: Leaving Napoli Will Make Me Cry

Osimhen: Leaving Napoli Will Make Me Cry

Victor Osimhen has hailed Napoli fans and admitted he will probably “cry” when leaving the club.

Osimhen is expected to leave the former Serie A champions this summer.

The Nigeria international’s destination is still unknown at the moment with the likes of Chelsea, Arsenal and Paris Saint-Germain reportedly interested in the striker.

He was asked to describe the Napoli fans during an interview with Betsson Sport.

“Extraordinary. For me it’s absolutely incredible. I’ve been in football for 6-7 years now and I say it in every interview when they ask me about Napoli fans.

“When I have to look for a word to describe them, I am speechless because they are absolutely electrifying, I have never seen anything like this that takes football so seriously the way fans support the team is truly unbelievable. I have played in other clubs, but the passion that the Neapolitans have for their club is out of this world.

“You can see it in the stadium, when we lose or when we win, everyone in the stadium is really electrifying, every player has goosebumps, not just Victor, and when we score it’s fantastic, the whole stadium turns upside down and starts celebrating.

“They are among the best fans in the world for how they support their team and how they live their everyday lives making sure the identity of this club is connected to them.

“For me it’s a fantastic feeling, in some clubs it’s the history that creates the identity, in Naples it’s the fans who make the team what it is. The way they support the team and each player is truly incredible.

“Sometimes I understand why some legends of the past cried when they left Naples, because it is an extraordinary emotion to play in the stadium and hear your name shouted from the first minute to the 90th, supporting the team and cheering.”

    It’s good for Osimhen to make progress in his career but he must be mindful of the next club he goes to. PSG is good and probably Arsenal or Man U. He must be warry of Chelsea. Chelsea for now are disorganised. It’s good for Osimhen to decline going to Saudi Arabia at this stage of his career. He has much to play for in Europe at the moment.
