Napoli manager Luciano Spalletti has explained why Victor Osimhen is now a better striker.
Osimhen has developed into one of the best strikers in the world since Spalletti took charge at the Diego Armando Maradona Stadium.
The 24-year-old further enhanced his reputation by netting a brace in Napoli’s 3-0 victory against Bundesliga club, Eintracht Frankfurt on Wednesday night.

The Nigerian netted the opener from a towering header from Matteo Politano’s cross late in the first half.
Osimhen slotted home the second from close range in the 53rd minute.
“He is an excellent striker who can be a bit of a soloist and makes these sudden surges, but he also has to combine with the rest of the team. He is starting to do that now and we are very happy,” Spalletti told Sky Italia after the game.
Osimhen has now scored 23 goals in 28 appearances across all competitions for Napoli this season.
