Why I Scolded Osimhen During Win Against Frosinone — Napoli Coach

Napoli head coach Rudi Garcia revealed he reproached Victor Osimhen during the half-time break of their 3-1 win against Frosinone on Saturday.

Osimhen scored twice at the Stadio Benito Stirpe as the champions started the defence of their title on a winning note.

Garcia however stated that he was not happy with Osimhen’s performance especially in the first half.

“Offensively, he was excellent, he scored two goals and there is nothing I can tell him,” Garcia told DAZN.

“Defensively, I didn’t like him at all and I told him during the break. He used to press more and defend better in the past. We changed this thing in the second half and we played with more quality.

“I knew he was not fit to play 90 minutes, but we waited for his second goal,” continued Garcia.

“He is a leader and this will never change, it’s his strong point.”

  • you want him to score goals for the team and at the same time be falling back to defend because he has a high work-rate abi? then when he cubs an injury the whole team suffers. as much as i appreciate the tactics of he modern game, i sill feel thata eam needs o proect their most prized asset on the field of play and not over-work them. so coach, use your reason. dont over-work osimhen instead encourage him and keep him fresh so he can continue banging in goals like he knows how to.

      That’s Osimhen’s ste. Thats what marks him out. He’s scored so many goals like that a number of times. Putting pressure on the defence to curtail the opponents’ attacking forays. The coach knows exactly what he’s saying
