UCL:Why Osimhen Is Better Than Ever — Napoli Boss Spalletti

Napoli manager Luciano Spalletti has explained why Victor Osimhen is now a better striker.

Osimhen has developed into one of the best strikers in the world since Spalletti took charge at the Diego Armando Maradona Stadium.

The 24-year-old further enhanced his reputation by netting a brace in Napoli’s 3-0 victory against Bundesliga club, Eintracht Frankfurt on Wednesday night.

The Nigerian netted the opener from a towering header from a Matteo Politano’s cross late in the first half.

Osimhen slotted home the second from close range on 53rd minute.

“He is an excellent striker who can be a bit of a soloist and makes these sudden surges, but he also has to combine with the rest of the team. He is starting to do that now and we are very happy,*Spalletti told Sky Italia after the game.

Osimhen has now scored 23 goals in 28 appearances across all competitions for Napoli this season.
