Osimhen has been impressive for the Partenopeans this season, and he has won the admiration of the Italian shot-stopper
Italian goalkeeper Alex Meret has praised his Napoli teammate Victor Osimhen for his impressive performances. Meret also underlined Osimhen’s enormous potential and his need to keep improving.
Meret arrived in Naples a year before Osimhen, and the duo have spent two years together at the club. But the Super Eagles star has made a big impression on Meret.
Osimhen struggled with injuries last season, but he still churned out ten goals and three assists in 24 Serie A appearances. This season, the former Lille man has taken it a notch higher, bagging twelve goals and four assists in 22 league games.
The Super Eagles star’s performances have earned him a place in Meret’s good books.
“A great player, he still has to improve in some aspects, Meret told Il Napolista.
“But he has enormous potential. He is giving us a lot, but he can help us even more because he has unique and impressive qualities.”
However, even with Osimhen’s brilliance, the Partenopeans are still third on the Serie A log, four points off AC Milan. Nonetheless, Napoli’s hopes of claiming their first Scudetto in 32 years are still not over with five games left.
