‘Why I’ll Prefer Osimhen Over Mbappe’ – Former Inter Sporting Director

‘Why I’ll Prefer Osimhen Over Mbappe’ – Former Inter Sporting Director

Erstwhile Inter Milan and Roma Sporting Director Walter Sabatini says he will prefer to have Victor Osimhen over Kylian Mbappe.

Osimhen has been in red hot form for Napoli in his second season with the Serie A leaders netting nine goals in 10 appearances in all competitions.


In his debut season, he scored 10 goals in 30 outings in the Italian top-flight but has already bagged five goals after seven games.

Speaking with Corriere dello Sport, Sabatini , who also held the position of Sporting Director at Roma and Bologna, listed some qualities which Osimhen possesses that will make him pick him ahead of the French 2018 World Cup winner.


“Osimhen, Mbappe? I choose the first. He (Osimhen) does everything, scores in every way, he is unstoppable.

“He rushes on impossible balls and he makes them his. Today, between Mbappe and Osimhen I’ll take Osimhen.”

The Super Eagles star striker could add to his tally for the season and help Napoli maintain top spot when they visit Roma on Sunday.

    He is obviously the best striker in the world at the moment considering the options he provides for his team mates with and without the ball. He makes teams afraid of taking Napoli because if u do u will leave spaces behind for him to feast on. World best

    He simply makes the round leather entertaining and lively. La Gazzetta dello Sport, an Italiano sport wrote “After Okocha, Osimhen is the most famous player to have come from Africa”. He has started writing the country’s name in Gold.

    Osimhen eventually became one of Nigeria’s brightest stars. He is now to pen his signature on the books of the World no1 club, go for it Victor.

    Wao Wao Wao! AS SOCCER puts it, Victor Osimhen has been setting Serie A alight this season with the Nigeria international bagging nine goals in 10 games across all competitions for Napoli. Plaudits have been coming thick and fast for the striker, who has been described as “unstoppable” by Walter Sabatini. Osimhen’s form has led to interest from abroad with Bayern Munich and Real Madrid both keeping a close eye on the prolific 22-year-old. Osimhen: Bayern to offer €100m to beat Real Madrid to Nigeria star.
