Victor Osimhen has been the star of the season in Serie A so far this term and his 21 league goals has seen him rise to the top of the goalscoring charts. The Nigerian has been tremendous for Napoli and his work alongside fellow star Kvicha Kvaratskhelia has seen the Partenopei earn a 19-point lead atop the Serie A standings as they are set to win their first Scudetto since 1990 when Diego Maradona was in Naples. Speaking with Elegebete Tv Sports, via Sky Sport Italia, Osimhen discussed his time with Napoli, the Neapolitan fans and overcoming injury problems.
“I’ve had many injuries since I’ve been in Europe but they have made me who I am today. The love of the fans in Naples is incredible, I’m happy to be a source of inspiration and the only way to repay them is to make their dreams come true: I can’t wait to win the Scudetto.”
“In Germany I had surgery on my right knee three times, then a shoulder problem which also required surgery. But these things from the past made me who I am today. When I moved to Italy everything was different: I had Covid, then a right hand injury that kept me out for three months and it was a difficult time, but I always believed in myself. I knew I would come back stronger and I could make my wishes come true, silencing those who didn’t believe in me. Also last season I had a bad injury to my face, it was another bad moment that required an operation. It was hard for me, but I surrounded myself with my loved ones and it helped me heal faster. I’m happy to have a mask today to protect me.”
