Osimhen Would Fit Into Any Top Team In The World  —Ex-Milan President, Berlusconi

Former Italian Prime Minister and ex-AC Milan president Silvio Berlusconi has said Victor Osimhen would fit into any top team in the world.

Osimhen has been instrumental to Napoli’s push for a first Serie A title since the 1989-1990 season.

The Super Eagles striker, currently on 21 goals, leads the top scoring chart.

His form has attracted interest from some of Europe’s top clubs among which include Manchester United, Arsenal and Chelsea.

And speaking ahead of Sunday’s clash between Napoli and Milan, Berlusconi said he is particularly impressed by the mercurial talents of Kvicha Kvaratskhelia and Osimhen, who have 47 goal contributions between them in Serie A so far this season.

However, the 86-year-old expresses his disappointment that Osimhen will not feature against Milan due to injury.

Osimhen picked up the injury while during the international break with the Super Eagles in the 2023 AFCON qualifiers against Guinea-Bissau.

“Players like Kvaratskhelia or Osimhen would go well in any team in the world,” Berlusconi side in an interview on Gazzetta dello Sport.

“In this sense, Osimhen’s injury is truly a shame: it takes away an element of great charm from the match against Milan.

“In any case, today Napoli are truly a great team, one of the best in Europe, is dominating the championship with absolute merit and will be a very tough opponent for Milan.”

  • Anyone still doubting if osimhen will fit into any team or league in the world does not recognize a generational talent if he sees one

      Without Osimhen, Napoli don collect.
      While a tree never makes a forest, Osimhen’s presence in the attack usually gives the opponent a lot to think about. His absence today made it easier for Milan to commit more men forward.

      @Kenny, it’s not funny at all. Just hope Napoli survives the UCL quarter finals with is demoralizing result today. I hope Osimhen plays the two matches….. This is not good for VO9 & Napoli… The break is almost like a setback… We warned him.
      Napoli players were too heavy and selfish… They need to boost their fitness level again.
