Napoli boss Spalletti hails matchwinner Osimhen: He will become extraordinary

Napoli boss Luciano Spalletti hailed Victor Osimhen after victory over Roma.

Osimhen proved the matchwinner for the Azzurri.

Spalletti said, “Osimhen has these sudden changes of pace that only he can do. When he gets his emotions sorted out, he will become extraordinary.

“At times he tries to do everything himself, attacks the ball and the goal without realising where his teammates are. But he is physical, he is strong and we need him to complete the squad, also in the air.

“He is one of the best headers of the ball I have ever seen. We didn't give him as much service last season, but he was also decisive when defending on set plays and resolving a lot of issues for us there."

Napoli also leaned on another excellent Kim Min-jae performance.

“When there's a sense of danger, Kim is so alert, so quick to step up and take control of the situation. He keeps an eye on everything and everyone, so it's more than just his physicality."
