Napoli Coach Charges Players To Improve Service To Osimhen


Napoli head coach Luciano Spalletti has called on his players to improve their service to Victor Osimhen.

The Super Eagles star striker marked his first start for Napoli since November with a goal in Sunday’s 2-0 win at Venezia to boost their title hopes.

It was his sixth league goal and 10th in all competitions for Napoli this season.

Osimhen had been out since last year following a facial injury he sustained in a league clash with Inter Milan.

Speaking during an interview after the game, Spalletti explained on how Osimhen can be assisted by his teammates to improve.

“He has the quality, it’s us who have to improve in serving him, not dribbling all the time and not putting the defenders in a position to defend against his qualities.

“In the first half we played too much man to man and not enough in space, forcing him to have the entire opposing team around him.”

Sunday’s win saw Napoli move just a point behind leaders Inter in the league table.
