Napoli head coach Gennaro Gattuso is confident that Victor Osimhen will be a great asset to his team as the season progresses.

Napoli manager Gennaro Gattuso says the absence of Victor Osimhen is being felt within the team despite Sunday’s 4-0 win over Roma in a Series A tie.

Osimhen suffered a shoulder injury while on duty for the Super Eagles during the international break, which has seen him miss a couple of games for the San Paolo Stadium outfit.

And Manager, Gattuso while reacting to Napoli’s big win over Roma praised his team’s mentality but rues the absence of the Nigeria international.

“We have missed Osimhen in recent weeks, remember, he is an important player,” Gattuso said of the Forward, who is gradually returning to fitness having commenced light training and gym work.

Osimhen linked up with the Partenopei from French club Lille in a record deal in the summer.

He has played a total of six matches for the Gattuso’s side, netting two goals in the process.
