In-form Osimhen Will Be A Superstar, Says Notaro

By Daily sports on May 7, 2021

Nigeria international Victor Osimhen will become a superstar according to former Sporting Charleroi manager Mario Notaro.

The 70-year-old tactician got the opportunity to work with Osimhen during the youngster’s loan spell at Charleroi where he spent the 2018/19 season.

Osimhen spent the season on loan from German club VFL Wolfsburg and he impressed – scoring 20 goals in 36 competitive matches for Charleroi.

The Lagos-born player then secured a move to French club OSC Lille in July 2019 where he excelled before joining Italian giants SSC Napoli in a big-money transfer in July 2020.

Osimhen initially struggled at Napoli due to injuries and coronavirus-related problems, but he has since netted eight goals in 20 Italian Serie A games this season.

“I must say that you could already see he was very strong, Napoli has taken on a striker who will assert himself a lot,” Notaro told Radio Kiss Kiss.

“I am convinced that he will become a top player in the world. He is truly extraordinary and has incredible quality, it is no coincidence that he is showing what he is capable of doing.”

Napoli signed Osimhen for a club-record fee of €70 million potentially rising to €80 million with add-ons, making him the most expensive African transfer to date.

The 22-year-old, who is known for his blistering speed and finishing ability, has scored in three successive Serie A games against Lazio, Cagliari and Torino.
