Crotone Boss Confirms Simy Nwankwo Will Leave This Summer

Crotone manager Serse Cosmi has confirmed ace striker Simy Nwankwo will leave the club this summer.

Simy netted twice in Crotone’s 4-3 away win at Parma, which means he has broken Yakubu Aiyegbeni’s 9-Year European Record.

Simy’s brace at Parma took his tally to 19 goals, moving him ahead of Aiyegbeni’s 17 goals.

“He won’t remain in Serie B, because he deserves a different level and could even go abroad,” confirmed Cosmi.

“It’s not easy to understand the sheer potential he has without looking at his statistics. He scored 20 in Serie B last season, 19 in Serie A. That’s a huge amount.

“He has quality and is so calm in front of goal. When he steps up to take a penalty, you just know it’s going in. He will leave Crotone because he deserves a better situation than this.”

On Crotone’s performance at Parma and impending relegation, Cosmi said:“I might be biased, but few teams have so many forwards who can get shots on goal as Crotone,” Cosmi told Sky Sport Italia via Complete Sports.

“It’s a pity, because this team has always shown quality and our recent defeats have been narrow. Unfortunately, we don’t have the sense of desperation needed for a defence – and the rest of the team – that is battling to avoid relegation. That can be decisive, because we lack confidence and when Parma got back to 3-2, we froze.

“We make mistakes that frankly are not worthy of this level. It’s a shame, because we have fun with our football and are entertaining for the neutral too. We play, we attack, but we tend to lose.”
