Napoli manager, Walter Mazzarri has continued to shower praises on Victor Osimhen following the forward’s impressive display in the win against Atalanta on Saturday.
Osimhen made his return to the Serie A champions squad after recovering from a hamstring problem.
The 24-year-old sustained the injury in Nigeria’s friendly against Saudi Arabia last month.
The former Lille striker made instant impact on his return, setting up Elf Elmas for Napoli’s winning goal in the 2-1 win against Atalanta at the Gewiss Stadium.
Mazzarri eulogised the Nigerian and labelled him a champion.
“Osimhen? We’re talking about a champion. He told me he could do 20-25 minutes [against Atalanta]. A player like that can make the difference; he makes the opposing defenses worried,” Mazzarri said per Napoli magazine.
