Former Real Madrid coach Fabio Capello has heaped praises on Super Eagles striker, Victor Osimhen for his determination and hunger for goals.
Capello made this known in an interview with TMW, where he warned Napoli president Aurelio de Laurentiis to have a strong grip of the Nigerian international.
The former England manager admits he heard some transfer rumours around the striker when in Dubai for the Globe Soccer Awards.

He told TMW: “(Didier) Drogba was also awarded… The case in point is that, even if he had more technique and quality.
“But Osimhen is young, he can improve. (Rafael) Leao has more class, but Osimhen is a centre-forward, one who scores, has the qualities to be a crack.
“I heard rumours here in Dubai, De Laurentiis needs to straighten the antennas. Here I know several… Real Madrid? I don’t do names, not even under torture.”
Osimhen is a Nigerian professional footballer who plays as a striker for Serie A club Napoli and the Nigeria national team.
Born in Nigeria, Osimhen began his senior career in Germany at VfL Wolfsburg in 2017. Following a season and a half at the club, he moved to Belgian side Charleroi on loan in 2018–19, before moving to France at Lille. In 2020, Osimhen transferred to Serie A club Napoli for a club-record fee of €70 million. He won the Serie A Best Young Player award in the 2021–22 season.
Osimhen won the Golden Boot award at the 2015 FIFA U-17 World Cup, which Nigeria won. He made his senior international debut in June 2017 and played at the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations.Copyright © 2022 Completesports.com All rights reserved.

Who cares!, Abeg CSN stop showing news of this boy until he make a public apology to Nigeria and Nigerian football fans for missing that game and vows to never try such rubbish again unless he is clearly injured and we see it. Like in the case of a True AFRICAN Legend Sadio Mane and Victor Moses!
Some TRIBAL and RELIGIOUS BIGOT like @UGO said the CORE NORTHERNERS are the PROBLEM of the SE…
But yesterday no single CORE NORTHERNERS and they were TRASHED HEAVILY…
Now the FOOL @UGO as expected is saying it was because OSIMHEN didn’t PLAY…
WHEN are WE going to STOP with all the EXCUSES?
@Monkey. l appreciates your posts these days that l think of you as a distant brother from another mother. ha! ha! Honestly, l tends to stop posting soon after l duly consumed your well-tailored posts. Keep it up, bro.
On the other side of the coin, l do not understand where Ugo is coming from. His propensity to abuse, negativity prone and down-grading individual, is always what a civilize Nigeria would not stand for. Mr Ugo Iwunze, please let the reader of your posts be cheerful at times when they end reading and seeing your name. Too much of everything is not good.
@EDOMAN thanks for the ENCOMIUM these days…
Victor Osimehn should just be careful; he started out in Nigeria and his stars attracted suitors who are willing to pay good money for his services. Faking an injury doesn’t speak well of his patriotism. Much as I understand the workings of the Nigerian footballing world, he should still make himself available when he is desired, requested or needed
