Legendary Italy defender, Fabio Cannavaro says Nigerian striker, Victor Osimhen has the ability to hurt opposition teams in the box.
The 22-year-old has been in a red-hot form this season, scoring four goals in six Serie A appearances for Napoli.
Cannavaro, who currently is the Manager of Chinese club Guangzhou, believes Napoli can win the Scudetto this season, as he singled out Osimhen for praise.
“Napoli are solid,” the former Ballon d’Or winner told Tribal Football. “They can win the Scudetto. But beware of the two sides from Milan.
“Spalletti’s team looks like a wall at times and have different solutions. [Victor] Osimhen was thought to be a crazy horse, but in the box, he knows how to hurt the opponents.
“Never rule out Juventus, they know how to manage the difficult moments and will be able to return,” he added.
Prior to the international break, Osimhen was named the league’s Player of the Month for September following his blistering start to the 2021-22 season.
He managed to beat Inter Milan midfielder Nicolo Barella, AC Milan’s Brahim Diaz, and Fiorentina’s Giacomo Bonaventura to the award which is organised by the Italian Footballers’ Association.
In the month of September alone, Osimhen managed to score seven goals in six matches across all competitions for Luciano Spalletti’s side and four of them were in Serie A and two in the Europa League.
He also scored for Nigeria when they beat the Central African Republic 2-0, and will hope to continue with his goal scoring form when Napoli return to league action with a home game against Torino at Diego Armando Maradona Stadium.
