Italian Serie A club side Napoli recorded a 10-0 victory over their opponent with Nigeria striker Victor Osimhen scoring a hat-trick in his debut, the head coach of Napoli Gennaro Gattuso has warned Napoli fans not to get over-excited after Victor Osimhen’s debut hat-trick on Friday. Osimhen marked his first game for Napoli with a hat-trick inside eight against fourth division club L’Aquila.

The game was Napoli’s second pre-season game after they had earlier thrashed Castel di Sangro 10-0. Osimhen was not in action against Castel di Sangro. But Gattuso has warned fans of the club not to put pressure on the €80m signing from Lille. According to the coach he said: “It’s too easy to get excited now, we’ve got to give him time and let him work, not put pressure on.” “He is an important player and we paid a lot for him, but there were no doubts he would give us something different that we haven’t had in my time here. There’s a long way to go.”

Gennaro Guttuso speaking to Sky Sport Italia said: “It’s not like we suddenly signed Pele or Maradona, we simply brought in a player with certain characteristics that can help us.” Gattuso has won one trophy since joining Napoli, he won the Coppa Italia title last season after they shocked Juventus on penalties.
