Edinson Cavani has heaped Praises on Napoli’s Victor Osimhen following remarkable season-long performance by the Nigerian for the Partenopei.
Cavani himself who played for Napoli acknowledged that Osimhen is very special to his kids.
Napoli won the Scudetto this season, their first in more than three decades, thanks in large part to the 24-year-old.
In 30 league games for Luciano Spalletti’s team, the former Wolfsburg player has so far scored 23 goals.
In the UEFA Champions League, Osimhen added five more goals.
Speaking at his interview With DAZN, Cavani had this to say:
“Idol of my children? They talked a lot about Kvaratskhelia and Osimhen. Even twenty days ago when they came to see me they spoke to me about it. It’s nice to know they have these idols.”
Cavani also talked about Osimhen’s hunger and drive for success:
Osimhen? I really like his hunger, he’s incredible, he never gives up, and so in the end that’s what makes you a difference and makes you a competitive player,” he added.
“He has everything to continue growing and become one of the best strikers in the world. The Scudetto was also won thanks to his hunger”.
