Victor Osimhen: I need to continue working hard

3. Super Eagles forwars Victor Osimhen was unstoppable with two goals and an assist as Napoli flattened Spezia 4-1 away from home on Saturday, but lost Dries Mertens to injury.

Victor Osimhen is determined to keep working harder at Napoli despite his impressive start to the 2021/22 campaign.

Osimhen, 22, has been the standout performer for Luciano Spalleti’s side this season.

The Nigeria international scored for the third consecutive game in Napoli’s 4-0 away win at Sampdoria on Thursday night.

The forward has now scored five goals in five appearances across all competitions for the Partenopei.

The former Lille striker is delighted with his form and is willing to keep fighting for the team.

“I’m really happy,” Osimhen told the club’s website.

“It was important for me to start the season well and I want to thank the coach for his confidence in me. I’m honoured to play for this club.

“Last year I had Covid and then got a bad injury. I’m in good shape this season.

“I’m training consistently and I’m listening to the advice the coach gives me and the help I get from the team.

“I’m pleased with what I’m doing but I know I need to continue working hard. We all need to continue down this track.”
