Former Napoli striker, Andrea Carnevale, has offered a surprising advice to Victor Osimhen that he should be selfish in order to score more goals for the Blues.
Since his big money move from Lille in the summer transfer window, the Nigeria international has managed only one goal in six appearances across all competitions.
Osimhen has provided an assist which came in the 6-0 rout of Genoa, the second Napoli goal scored by Piotr Zielinski, and has averaged 1.5 key passes per game.
“For me, the Napoli squad is very strong. Together with that of Inter it can challenge Juve,” Carnevale stated.
He added: “I know Osimhen. For me it is very strong. I advise him to be less generous towards his teammates and to start dedicating himself to scoring, because he has many in his legs”.
Osimhen, 21, will miss Napoli’s trip to Rijeka in the Europa League after he was shown his first career red card in the win at Real Sociedad but is available for selection against Sassuolo tomorrow.
Meanwhile, Cyriel Dessers has insisted that he can play alongside Paul Onuachu in attack in the wake of Racing Genk’s 4-0 demolition of KAS Eupen in the Belgian First Division A on Friday.
Genk’s Danish manager Jess Thorup handed Dessers his first start in the league since August 30, 2020 when he went the distance in the 2-1 defeat to the champions Club Brugge.
And the Super Eagles striker repaid his manager’s faith by doubling Genk’s advantage with a right-footed shot three minutes into the second half, assisted by his compatriot and strike partner Onuachu.
Before this fixture, the 25-year-old had not scored from open play, with his two strikes coming from the spot in matches with Zulte Waregem and Beerschot V.A.
Onuachu, the leading scorer in the division, took his tally in the league to nine goals after opening the scoring against Eupen.
