Serie A: Osimhen Not Ready To Play 90 Minutes – Napoli Boss


Napoli of Italy Boss Rudi Garcia has said Nigeria’s Super Eagles striker Victor Osimhen is not fit enough to play 90 minutes.

The Nigerian international scored twice on Saturday in the opening league game against the newly promoted Frosinone to ensure a 3-1 win.

Garcia said he can understand that Osimhen is not fit enough but he needs to do more in terms of defending.

“Offensively, he was excellent, he scored two goals and there is nothing I can tell him,” Garcia told DAZN.

“Defensively, I didn’t like him at all and I told him during the break. He used to press more and defend better in the past. We changed this thing in the second half and we played with more quality.

“I knew he was not fit to play 90 minutes, but we waited for his second goal,” continued Garcia.

“He is a leader and this will never change, it’s his strong point.”
