Head Coach of Italia Serie A side Napoli, Gennaro Gattuso has underlined the importance of Nigeria’s Super Eagles striker Victor Osimhen to the team, BSNSports.com.ng reports.
Osimhen switched to the Serie A side this summer after an amazing performance for French Lique One side LOSC Lille last season.
Having failed to score in the past matches, Nigeria youngster was the star player on Saturday as Napoli defeated free scoring Atalanta 4-1.
Gattuso said at post match conference that he was extremely happy for the goal Osimhen scored.
“Osimhen’s goal makes me happy because he hadn’t scored so far and he deserved it for the hard work done for the team”
“Victor was my wish and I thank the President for having satisfied me. It wasn’t easy but we have bought a player who is very important to us,” he said.
Osimhen netted the fourth goal of the match.
