Napoli head coach Luciano Spalletti has asked his players to improve their service to Super Eagles striker Victor Osimhen who is their point man. The former Wolfsburg and Lille star player marked his first start for Napoli since November with a goal in Sunday’s 2-0 win at Venezia to boost their title hopes.
Napoli Head Coach Luciano Spalletti Pass Instructions in favor of Osimhen
It was his sixth league goal and 10th in all competitions this season. Victor Osimhen had been out since last year following a facial injury he sustained in a league clash with Inter Milan. Speaking to newsmen after the game, Spalletti explained how Osimhen can be assisted by his teammates to improve.
The manager said: “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.
