Former Napoli and Atalanta goal machine Giuseppe Savoldi, has praised the aerial prowess striker Victor Osimhen.
Savoldi who scored 55 goals in 118 appearances appearances for Napoli claims the Nigerian striker shares a similar trait in terms of heading ability.
“Did I see myself again in Osimhen’s header against Spezia? Well a little, but the Nigerian is very good,” the 76 year-old former Napoli star recalls.
“He knows how to find the perfect timing for the headers. He has great elevation, it didn’t surprise me, we’re used to these goals by now.
“Osimhen has incredible qualities, he manages to break evenly, a rare thing. He’s already a complete striker, he has good technique, and speed, he has time in the header.
“And he can still improve in the game with his back to goal when the opponents rely on him. He’s still very young he can only get better, he will become one of the strongest in the world.”
Osimhen broke Cristiano Ronaldo’s Serie Vertical jump record of 2.56 meters by leaping a record height if 2.58 to score his first goal against Spezia last weekend.
