Elder brother to Victor Osimhen, Andrew, has explained reasons behind the Napoli move and links to Liverpool.
Also, In the interview with Europa Calcio he spoke about why the Super Eagles striker changed his agent in the course of signing for the Serie A club.
Andrew, we’re all waiting to see Victor in the blue shirt of Napoli.
I tell you I’m sure he will be a Napoli player. During that two-day visit he was impressed by the city. Either way, the most important thing is that he plays. Victor is a born fighter, he left Africa to go to Germany alone when he was still a kid, before he went to Belgium and France.
During the two days he spent in Naples Victor changed his agent, can you explain what happened?
He was no longer happy with the old agent. D’Avila then did a great job in this deal. Sometimes you have to change the people around you, also considering the importance of this transfer.
There were reports that Liverpool were also interested in Victor, can you confirm this?
I can’t confirm because I don’t know. In times like these we read a lot of rumors.
What were the factors regarding the choice of Napoli?
He was very happy to meet Gennaro Gattuso, he is a coach who follows and cares very much for his players. But also that meeting in Capri with De Laurentiis was very positive and Victor described De Laurentiis as a good person.
