Napoli striker Victor Osimhen has highlighted coach Luciano Spalletti’s role in his development.
Osimhen has a good working relationship with Spalletti, who is in his second season at the club.
The 23-year-old scored 18 goals in 32 games for Partenopei last season.
The striker has also been on the rise this campaign, scoring 11 goals and providing three assists in 14 appearances in all competitions.
Osimhen has cited Spalletti’s influence as the main reason for his impressive performances.
“My growth is linked to Spalletti,” Osimhen told Napoli Magazine.
“He believes in me. He gives me motivators, makes me work hard, and never lets me stop. With him, everything is easier because you know it’s a job that you get to do to get better. It’s just the beginning for me, I haven’t reached any milestones yet.”
Osimhen is expected to play when Napoli take on Lille in a friendly on Thursday night.
