Napoli manager, Luciano Spalletti has come out to say that Victor Osimhen needs to improve certain areas of his game. He recently revealed this while speaking to the press, and fans have been reacting.
According to him, the Nigerian striker needs to learn about the right movements because he kept getting caught offside in the game vs Barcelona.
Spalletti added that Barcelona definitely deserved the draw they got and there is more to play for in the second leg.
His words, “Osimhen gives us these incredible changes of pace. He still needs to learn about the right movements, as in the second half he was caught offside four or five times when he really should’ve been following the line.”
“The midfielders also need to draw out an opposition defender to then put the pass through. I do see this performance as an improvement if we can only carry on certain moves and approaches for the whole game.”
“It was the choice of defending deeper that cost us because that was a choice. When we attacked Barcelona, we caused them a lot of problems.”
“With all due respect, I will say Barcelona deserved a draw, but that penalty was non-existent.”
“It doesn’t change direction. It didn’t touch his fingertips, it touched his little finger.”
“The arm also seemed to be in a fairly natural position. “Either defenders have to keep their hands behind their backs at all times, which limits movement when running, or I don’t know what they are supposed to do.”
“As I said, Barcelona deserved an equaliser, but that was not a penalty.”
