The Nigerian international has taken the French Ligue 1 by storm, but he is yet to register a goal away from home, and that has brought up questions on whether he struggles when he is not playing at Stade Pierre-Mauroy.
However, Lille’s manager, Christopher Galtier has said he’s not worried about Osimhen’s poor away form, saying the team should take responsibility.
Although the 20-year-old has scored eight times in all competitions for Les Douges, they have all come at home. However, he has yet to score away from home this season, with Osimhen firing blank once again in Lille’s loss to Toulouse.
Speaking after the loss to Toulouse, Galtier said: ”We lose as a team and win as a team. Osimhen is part of the team. Collectively we will have to do better away from home not just Osimhen. It’s for the entire team.”
Nevertheless, Osimhen will have the chance to increase his tally at home when Lille welcome Valencia in the Champions League on Wednesday night.
