Napoli coach Spalletti praises Osimhen after brace in victory at Verona

Napoli coach Luciano Spalletti was delighted after their 2-1 win at Hellas Verona.

Victor Osimhen struck both goals for the visitors.

“We played with focus, sacrifice, pulling out those qualities of character and determination that at times we lack. If we can maintain that level, we can still have our say," Spalletti told DAZN.

“Osimhen still doesn't realise the distance from his marker, sometimes he runs towards the ball and has the time and space to control, pick his spot. He doesn't need to rush.

“He can start a run from midfield, take on four or five defenders by himself with that pace, so he has such potential."

“Osimhen is a top player with everything on his side. He's young, he's a good lad, he can be a bit too enthusiastic and gives his all. When we are talking about timing, movement, the dummy on a defender to change direction, these are the areas where he needs to improve."
