Ex-Juventus star Vincenzo Iaquinta has disclosed that Napoli has the potential to win the Serie A title with Super Eagles striker, Victor Osimhen goal scoring form.
The Nigerian, who has netted six goals in all competitions for Napoli, netted in the team's 2-0 win over Cagliari at the weekend and will be hoping to extend his form to the Europa League on Thursday.
In a chat with Il Mattino, as per TuttoNapoli, Iaquinta stated that Osimhen has characteristics very similar to him during his playing days.
He described the former Golden Eaglets star as a players blessed with speed and great techniques.
“For clarity, Osimhen does not argue: speed, technique, and power are the innate qualities of this extraordinary striker,” Iaquinta told Il Mattino, as per TuttoNapoli.
“Spalletti, however, when he has this type of bomber, goes to the party because he manages to enhance the attack to the depth with his way of setting the manoeuvre.
“Osimhen has characteristics very similar to those I had: high and fast, he attacks the depth: there are few forwards like that. Today, with these qualities, there is only Haaland who has some crazy times.
“With Spalletti, Napoli got off to a great start, with an extraordinary place that can become enthralling: it is useless to hide, also thanks to Osimhen, they (Napoli) can aim to win the Scudetto.”
