Osimhen back to normal – Italian legend

Published

Italian legend Salvatore Bagni believes the Serie A is yet to witness the qualities possessed by Victor Osimhen following the Nigerian resurgence recently.

Bagni, a former Napoli midfielder, said Osimhen was getting back his form after netting in the last two games for Napoli in the Serie A and seemed to have overcome initial challenges since joining the Serie A side from Lille of France.

“I love him (Osimhen),” Bagni told Corriere del Mezzogiorno. I know him very well, having followed him in the past years. “

“He has grown up, has great qualities. Now he has passed the limits.

“Three phases: at the beginning, there was great euphoria, then the discomfort for the injury, COVID and also the pressure and expectations given how much he was paid. Now he has recovered and this is his normality.”
