  • Tough game but Napoli secured the points. Now all they have to do is win their final game and they are in the champions league next season.
    Big congratulations to simy nwankwo for scoring yet another goal in his teams draw against benevento today. If Genk dont want to release Onuachu to Lazio, they can go for simy who is a proven goal scoring machine.

    Osimhen is really overwhelming himself in a team that everyone wants to score when a simple pass to a free striker will be best but they go for glory, they only give him strange wayward long ball that only shaolin football players can control and then expect him to do miracle. Boy must leave Napoli if this doesn’t stop else he will exhaust himself and should Gatusso leave only God knows what will happen to him.

  • A change in coaching may not be such a bad thing for Osimhen. Gatuso seems unable to make his players bring Osimhen into the game by passing to him more, so maybe a new coach who has no loyalties to any player can come in and change the team’s style of play to favour Victors skillset. It might turn out to be a good thing for the young man.
