Napoli’s newly appointed manager, Walter Mazzarri, has expressed admiration for the club’s star forward, Victor Osimhen, ahead of their upcoming Serie A match against Atalanta.
Having taken over from Rudi Garcia just last week, Mazzarri is set to lead the Serie A champions for the first time on Saturday. Osimhen, who has been recovering from a hamstring injury sustained during international duty, is expected to be included in the squad as a substitute.
In his first encounter with the Nigerian striker, Mazzarri spoke highly of Osimhen’s character and potential impact on the team.
“Osimhen is a great guy. He’s been cheerful since the very first moment. He is a generous guy who thinks about winning and sacrifices himself. He is getting back in shape and I am happy,” Mazzarri stated, as reported by Football Italia.
The 24-year-old has already made a significant impact this season, scoring six goals in just eight league appearances for Napoli.
Mazzarri’s arrival has brought a sense of anticipation and optimism to the club, with fans eager to see how he will utilize the talents of players like Osimhen to maintain their position at the top of the Serie A table.
With the team set to play matches every three days, Mazzarri emphasized the importance of building strong relationships with all the players, including Osimhen, to ensure their success on the field.
As Napoli prepares to face Atalanta, the spotlight will undoubtedly be on Osimhen and his potential impact under the guidance of their new manager.
The praise from Mazzarri serves as a testament to Osimhen’s dedication and determination to contribute to the team’s success, and it sets the stage for an exciting chapter in Napoli’s Serie A campaign.
As fans eagerly anticipate Osimhen’s return to full fitness and form, Mazzarri’s words have only added to the excitement surrounding the Nigerian striker’s potential impact in the upcoming matches.
With the team’s success in mind, Mazzarri’s positive assessment of Osimhen has set the stage for an inspiring and promising journey for both the player and the club as they navigate the challenges of the Serie A season.
