Napoli president, Aurelio De Laurentiis, has pleaded with the club fans to be patient with club’s record signing Victor Osimhen.
Osimhen trained for the first time with the club on Monday since signing for the club from French Ligue one side Lille, in a deal worth €80m.
Aurelio Di Laurentiis was one of the 500 hundred spectators who watch the player trained at their training base in Castel di Sangro.
“The fans ought to be patient with him because Osimhen hasn’t played in seven months and still needs to get to know Italian football,” De Laurentiis told Radio Kiss Kiss.
“I urge the fans to give him time and space, so he can help the team. Rino Gattuso won’t give anyone an easy time.”
“I see every now and then the media say I paid €47m! Evidently I ought to start publishing the contracts. In Germany, where they are very reliable, they always talk about gross wages and not net.” he said.
Meanwhile, Osimhen was on target for the club in their 11 aside training session.
