‘Osimhen hard to catch in open space’ – Napoli’s Spalletti sings striker’s praise after Udinese thrashing

 The 22-year-old Super Eagle scored his first Serie A goal of the season as the Partenopei moved top of the 20-team table on Monday

Napoli coach Luciano Spalletti has described Victor Osimhen as a “really strong player” after his display led the team to demolish Udinese 4-0 in a Serie A fixture on Monday.

The Nigeria international scored his first Serie A goal of the season at Stadio Friuli in the 24th minute before Amir Rrahmani netted the second in the 35th minute, and Senegal defender Kalidou Koulibaly made it 3-0 in the 52nd minute with Hirving Lozano finishing the job in the 84th minute.

Osimhen’s goal came just three days after he helped Napoli to snatch a 2-2 draw against Leicester City in the Europa League fixture as he scored a brace at King Power Stadium.
