Rohr: “Osimhen is not like Drogba”
Nigeria coach Gernot Rohr has brushed off comparisons between Victor Osimhen and African Legend, Didier Drogba, maintaining his stance that the new Napoli forward is not on the same level as the Chelsea legend.
In quotes carried by ilnapolionline citing Il Mattino, Rohr explained : “He is not yet like Drogba, he could become one by working hard to enhance his skills.
“I saw in the Champions League how Napoli plays, Victor will be able to take advantage of the spaces created by his new teammates.
“He is intelligent and prepared, he knows how to adapt to his companions and the game system. Deadly in spaces, he can play as first striker or with a partner.
“He has physique and speed, excellent left and right and above all great feeling with the goal.”
Osimhen might have an eye for goal like Drogba but their gameplay is quite different. The former Chelsea striker was a beast in the air while Osimhen only scored once with his head last season.
