Napoli president De Laurentiis urges patience for Osimhen

Napoli president Aurelio De Laurentiis has urged patience from fans for Victor Osimhen.

The Nigeria striker arrived this summer from Lille.

“The fans ought to be patient with him, because Osimhen hasn't played in seven months and still needs to get to know Italian football," De Laurentiis told Radio Kiss Kiss.

“I urge the fans to give him time and space, so he can help the team. Rino Gattuso won't give anyone an easy time.

"I see every now and then the media say I paid €47m! Evidently I ought to start publishing the contracts. In Germany, where they are very reliable, they always talk about gross wages and not net."
