He’s my children’s idol – Napoli legend Cavani reveals admiration for Osimhen
Napoli legend Edison Cavani has talked up Victor Osimhen following the Nigerian's impressive performance for the Partenopei this season.
Cavani, himself a fearsome striker, also revealed his children have strong affection for Osimhen.
The 24-year-old played a key role in Napoli winning their first Scudetto in over three decades this season.
The former Wolfsburg player has so far scored 23 goals in 30 league appearances for Luciano Spalletti’s side.
Osimhen also scored five more goals in the UEFA Champions League.
“Idol of my children? They talked a lot about Kvaratskhelia and Osimhen. Even twenty days ago, when they came to see me, they spoke to me about it. It’s nice to know they have these idols,” Cavani told DAZN.
Osimhen has earned plaudits from former players, coaches, and pundits for his superlative displays for the Parthenopeans this season.
Cavani revealed his love for the striker and tipped him to be one of the best in the game.
“Osimhen? I really like his hunger; he’s incredible; he never gives up, and so in the end, that’s what makes you different and makes you a competitive player,” he added.
“He has everything to continue growing and become one of the best strikers in the world. The Scudetto was also won thanks to his hunger”.
Osimhen linked up with Napoli from Lille in 2020.
