“Osimhen is like the first Cavani we saw: the player who is hungry, wants to score and does it in every way, then he specialized and became a top-notch bomber.“
“Osimhen can go down that path, because he gives you various game possibilities. You can have 50 meters behind you and it hurts you, he can be in the penalty area and it hurts you anyway.“
“It is that striker who can become the great goalscorer, as Cavani in the following years here in Naples ”. He said.
