Napoli striker Victor Osimhen has spoken out regarding the rollercoaster of emotions his team has gone through in recent matchdays. The Partenopei re-opened Serie A proceedings at the start of the month with 1-0 defeat to Inter, before going on to dispatch Sampdoria and hand heavyweights Juventus a 5-1 thumping at the Stadio Diego Armando Maradona.
However, speaking to Radio Kiss Kiss (via TuttoJuve), Osimhen spoke first of the harrowing recent elimination from the Coppa Italia against Cremonese.
“The defeat to Cremonese? Unfortunately defeat hurts, but this is football. If you don’t put them behind when you have the chance, you are left with such a result. Now we have to think about Salernitana.”
The Nigerian marksman then rejoiced the fantastic display his team materialized to demolish the Bianconeri with a four-goal margin.
It’s a night to frame. My happiness is seeing the fans rejoice, and seeing happy people is my happiness. With the +9 gap on Milan and +10 on Inter and Juve, the Scudetto is achievable. But it is not the only goal we have.”
Osimhen and Napoli play Salernitana next, before ending the month by hosting Jose Mourinho’s Roma at home.
