Napoli manager Rudi Garcia has heaped plaudits on Victor Osimhen following the forward’s impressive performance against SC Braga on Wednesday night.
The Serie A champions won the UEFA Champions League group stage clash 2-1.
Osimhen provided the assist for Napoli’s opener scored by Giovanni Di Lorenzo in the 45th minute.
The Nigeria international was a thorn in the flesh of the opposition’s defence in the game.
The 24-year-old was named Man of the Match after the contest.
Garcia was full of praise for the talismanic striker, who has now failed to score in his last three games across all competitions for the Partenopei.
“Victor Osimhen fought hard and ran, it’s what I expect from all my players, that when it comes time to defend, they all help out,” he was quoted by football Italia.
Napoli will host Bologna at the Diego Armando Maradona Stadium in a Serie A fixture on Sunday.
