Gaetano D’Agostino Believes Osimhen Will Thrive Under Spalletti

By Omolagba Oluwayemi

Fiorentina midfielder Gaetano D’Agostino is convinced that the combination of Napoli manager Luciano Spalletti and Nigerian striker Victor Osimhen is a perfect match made in the stars, reports.

Spalletti has a history of working with traditional number nines and turning them into world-class strikers.

In his days at Udinese, Spalletti famously worked with Roberto Sosa and Stefano Fiore, then Mauro Icardi at Inter Milan and not forgetting Francesco Totti and Edin Dzeko at Roma.

His previous track records with traditional number nine has caused many to believe Osimhen would thrive playing under him in Napoli.

Osimhen arrived in Napoli last year for a club and African record transfer fee. And despite a few struggles in his debut season, the 22-year-old managed to find the back of the net ten times for Il Partenopei.

After spending part of his vacation in Nigeria, the Super Eagles star is back in Naples, poised to be Il Partenopei’s main man next term.

And D’Agostino is expecting the partnership of manager and player to turn the youngster into a top-level forward.

“He can do like Mirko Vucinic at Roma or Vincenzo Iaquinta to Spalletti’s Udinese. If you remember, they were both fast and did very well with the coach, who was able to exalt them,” the Vibonese coach explained to Radio Kiss Kiss as per Area Napoli.
