Neither Didier Drogba nor Victor Osimen had anything special to offer.
Osimen is performing at his best this season. Osimen, who has scored the most goals in Napoli this season, is a striker who is good at flexible movement and physical fight and has strong decision power.
He is also the league’s top scorer. Currently, Osimen has scored 19 goals in Serie A. He is six goals behind second place Lautaro Martinez (Inter Milan). Since Napoli’s team atmosphere is better than Inter Milan’s, there is a high possibility that Osimen will actually defend the top spot until the end.
Osimen, who shows a rising scoring ability, succeeded in scoring in the most recent match. Napoli won 2-0 against Empoli in the 24th round of Italian Serie A in the 2022-23 season held at the Carlo Castellani Stadium in Empoli, Italy on the 26th at 2:00 am (Korean time). With three points, Napoli maintained first place in the league and widened the gap to second place Inter Milan to 18 points.
If you look at Osimen’s goal scene on this day, you can see his excellent scoring sense. In the 17th minute of the first half, Hvica Kvarachhelia’s cross from the right hit the opponent’s defense and was deflected, leading to an own goal. Here, Osimen scored a key goal. In the 29th minute of the first half, after Kvarachhelia’s shot was blocked, the second ball came out, and Osimen, who was properly positioned in front of the goal, pushed it in and widened the gap. In the end, Napoli won 2-0 and took 3 points.
Not only in terms of scoring, but also in terms of personality, he has grown more than last season. Napoli coach Luciano Spalletti said in an interview with the global media ‘Dazun’, “Osimen became the player who delivered a message to his teammates in the locker room at halftime. He kept telling his teammates to remember last year and not be vigilant. I emphasize it. A player like this makes a difference,” he said, praising his personality.메이저사이트
Osimen also sought advice from his idol, Didier Drogba. Drogba, from Côte d’Ivoire, is of the same African origin as Osimen, a Nigerian national. After a stellar career at Chelsea, Drogba is a legendary striker in African football.
In an interview with French media ‘Canal Plus’, Drogba said, “I have been in contact with Osimen recently. He said that I am his role model. I have never actually met him, but I told him to just do what he is doing now.” From the standpoint of the drogbar, there was nothing special to order from Osimen at the moment.
