Former Lazio and Torino goalkeeper, Luca Marchegiani, has lauded Nigerian international and Napoli’s striker, Victor Osimhen, calling him a game-changer.
Marchegiani, who won the UEFA Cup Winners’ Cup with Lazio in 1999, praised the striker for his ability to shift the balance of a game in favour of his team.
Comparing his impact to that of legendary Brazilian striker Ronaldo, Marchegiani praised Osimhen’s performance this season, which has been nothing short of extraordinary.
Osimhen has scored an impressive 21 goals and provided four assists in 23 Serie A appearances, helping Napoli to establish a 19-point lead at the top of the league table.
The Nigerian international has also been a key player for Napoli in the UEFA Champions League, scoring three goals against Eintracht Frankfurt to help the team advance to the quarterfinals for the first time in the club’s history.
Marchegiani’s comments came after Osimhen’s two-goal performance against Torino on Sunday. The 24-year-old scored two lovely headers to continue his impressive performances for Napoli this season.
Despite being a relatively new addition to the team, Osimhen has already become a crucial player for Napoli. His exceptional performances have seen him being tipped to win the Ballon d’Or should Napoli go all the way to lift the Champions League.
Marchegiani also gave credit to Napoli’s manager, Luciano Spalletti, for creating a formidable team that has been performing exceptionally well this season. With more performances like this, Osimhen could cement his place as one of the best strikers in the world.
Osimhen’s performances have been nothing short of spectacular this season, and he has rightfully earned the praise of Luca Marchegiani. The Nigerian international’s contributions have been crucial in Napoli’s outstanding run of form, and if he continues in this manner, he could go on to achieve great things both for his club and country.
