Super Eagles coach, Jose Peseiro, has expressed his excitement following the exploits of Victor Osimhen in Europe.
After his remarkable outing last season, Saudi Arabia money bag Al Hilal approached Napoli for the services of the Nigerian international.
But Osimhen insisted on staying with the Italian champions and was keen to continue his European exploits.
” At first he thought about leaving, but then he decided to stay and do his best in Napoli. And I’m happy to see him still competing for big goals in Europe.
But Victor is very happy in Napoli. For his growth path, staying in Europe and showing off in the Champions League remains the best way. He is young and has time to prove his talent.
Then I understand that in the face of certain offers, one can waver: two seasons in Arabia are worth more than ten in Europe, but money is not everything. Victor has improved a lot in Italy”, he told Italian news outlet, Gazzetta dello Sport.
Osimhen is expected to lead the lines for Napoli when they face Sporting Braga in the UEFA Champions League on Wednesday.
