    Why are the afraid of his absence? I thought they had Kvaradona that has been receiving the headline that Osi deserves, in Madrid Vinicius does a lot but most praise goes to Benz, when Ronaldo was there it was Ronaldo and when Benz leaves it will be Vinicius but in Napoli they don’t know how to give honour to who deserves before hyping newbies like Kvara and Kim. Now he is injured and they were pummelled 4 Nil nobody heard kvaradona or Kim the Iron man. Charlatans that is how they’ll loose league title if Osimhen was not available.

      You said it all Bro. Osimhen’s absence has exposed the true state of things in Napoli. Osimhen is the reason why they are where they are and that fact is clear for all to see. None of those pretenders are anywhere close to him.

      I think all players at Napoli working mellow their ability in last two games! Why? Maybe they want to be in fool power during CL game against Milan or already declaimed forms! We will see in a few days!
