“He (Osimhen) is a gazelle because when he starts in space, he cannot be stopped,” he told Il Mattino as per TuttoNapoli.
“Not only is he fast, but he is also powerful. In Napoli, he’s irreplaceable, like Koulibaly.
“Osimhen has unique qualities. Now he just has to consecrate himself, and to do that, he has to win a Scudetto or at least the Serie A top scorers’ award.
“He has to improve in the aerial game.”
Osimhen will hope to net his fifth league goal of the season when Napoli host Torino at the Diego Maradona Stadium on Sunday.
Thirteen points separate Napoli and 11th placed Torino in the Serie A table, with a win or a draw good enough to send Luciano Spalletti’s men above AC Milan and back to the league summit.
