Napoli manager compares Victor Osimhen to AC Milan greats

Napoli manager compares Victor Osimhen to AC Milan greats

Napoli boss Luciano Spalletti has commended Victor Osimhen, contrasting him with AC Milan legend Marco van Basten and George Weah.

The Nigeria international keeps on standing out as truly newsworthy because of his goals which have assisted the Blues maintain their top position in the Italian Serie A standings, though level on 31 points with AC Milan.

And in the Europa League, defenders have not been able to cope with him, with the Napoli number 9 scoring four goals in the competition including a brace against Leicester City.

Despite a short career, Van Basten was the hero for the Netherlands when they won the 1988 European Championship, won three European Cups with Milan and three Ballon d’Or’s.

A three-time African Footballer of the Year, Weah, now Liberia’s President, won the Ballon d’Or in 1995.

“He reminds me of Marco van Basten , even if he is more technical. Victor is young and can improve, he will certainly reach those levels there ” Spalletti was quoted as saying by Milan Live.

He continued : “He also reminds me of Weah . He is probably less technical, but equally strong in terms of quality.”
