Napoli manager, Luciano Spalletti has come out to say that club striker, Victor Osimhen missed an easy goal against Ajax. He recently had his say while speaking to the press, and fans have been reacting.
According to him, he wasn’t sure about the Nigerian’s readiness after a few training sessions recently, but his easy chance missed means he is still match rusty at this time.
Spalletti added that his players have made Napoli proud after their qualification to the knockout round of the UCL.
His words, “We didn’t know where Osimhen was (in terms of readiness), as he did a few training (sessions) with us, so it was unknown. He didn’t work for the team on defence because he was not in condition,”
“I had to lift the team physically and then start again from the middle of the pitch. It took the legs of someone with this characteristic.”
“He has to play more with the team. He missed an easy goal, but this is one. He is not very good at dribbling with his teammates, but for us, he is an important player, and 50 minutes is a lot.”
“The boys have done an immense thing and have brought the pride of an entire people, like the Neapolitan one, into the field.”
“Ajax showed what level of football they are playing. It’s not that we lowered the level or were spectators given the results.”
