Sky Sport Italia pundit Alessandro Bonan has praised Victor Osimhen for his great performance in Napoli’s 2-0 win Sampdoria at the Stadio Luigi Ferraris on Sunday afternoon.
Osimhen scored the second goal for Napoli when he outpaced his marker and fired an unstoppable shot past goalkeeper Emil Audero in the 87th minute.
“Osimhen is the star of this day, but he is the same failure in this championship due to the problems he had,” Bonan said on Sky Sport Italia Calcio Show.
“You can see immediately, he is a special player.”
Victor Osimhen had struggled for form at the start of the season particularly after he sustained an shoulder injury on international duty for Nigeria in the Africa Cup of Nations qualifier against Sierra Leone in November.
Now the former Lille player is nearing his best form with a goal contribution of four (3 goals and 1 assist) in his last six matches in the Serie A.
His goal against Sampdoria takes his tally to five goals in sixteen appearances in the Italian top-flight.
