Osimhen: ‘I will forever be grateful to Serie A’

Napoli striker Victor Osimhen says he will ‘forever he grateful’ to Serie A after winning the Scudetto with the Partenopei. A 1-1 draw against Udinese was enough for the club to be crowned champions for the first time in 33 years, prompting an eruption of celebrations in the city of Naples. Speaking with DAZN (as quoted by TuttoNapoli) after the game, the Nigerian explained why he would always be grateful to the league and pinpointed the moment he and his teammates starting believing they could win the Serie A title,

“It is a fantastic emotion for me, we waited so many years to bring the Scudetto to Napoli and we succeeded, it is a day we will never forget for the rest of our lives. Now let’s go celebrate with the public in our stadium.”

“Greatest satisfaction of my life? I couldn’t have quantified this feeling, it is truly wonderful. At the beginning of the season we were underdogs, not many people believed in us but thanks to the union, a great coach, the president and everyone in the club we were able to believe in the Scudetto and win it. Now we enjoy the moment.”

“When did we realize we could win this Scudetto? When we won at home to Roma. They are a strong team and we fought all the way, there we realized we had the numbers to win this Scudetto, thanks also to the mentality of the group.”

“In what aspect do I feel I have improved in Serie A? I will forever be grateful to this league, to this competition. As I always say, I am learning the role of a striker and with Napoli it was immediately good emotions. I feel I have improved a lot, thanks especially to Spalletti and his staff, they gave me confidence to be able to grow and score a lot of goals.”

“Did I break the mask after the goal? “Yes (laughs, ed.)… But I have many, I changed it.”
