Diego Maradona Jnr backs Osimhen to succeed in Serie A
Diego Armando Maradona Jnr has tipped Victor Osimhen to take the Italian Serie A by storm this season with Napoli.
He pointed out that the young striker is good in front of goal but he has doubts about his link-up play
The son of Argentina legend, Diego Maradona wrote in his column in Repubblica via gonfialarete.com; “He is a forward with a great prospect, he has hallucinating room for improvement.
“If put in the right conditions, he can become a 30 goal striker. He’s just 21. I have expressed some doubts about his construction phase when it comes to tie up the game.
“He doesn’t have to do it too much, it doesn’t have to be his first goal. He is good at attacking depth and if he has space in front it hurts.
“He must be put in a position to kick many times on goal. Once he can be wrong, not the second”.
Osimhen scored 18 goals in all competitions for Lille last season before making a record breaking transfer to Napoli this summer.
