Ex-Italy striker advises Osimhen to reduce his run

Victor Osimhen is one of the fans’ favorites at the Diego Armando Maradona Stadium in Napoli as his goals and presence are key to the Partenopei’s quest for the title, soccernet.ng reports.

However, former Chievo and Italy striker Sergio Pellisier has advised the Nigerian to save energy if he wants to score more goals. He said Osimhen couldn’t run as much as he used to and score because he wasn’t made to look like Manchester United striker Edinson Cavani.

Cavani, like Osimhen, was also a fan favorite at Napoli during his time in Serie A.

Pellisier told Radio Goal via Kiss Kiss Napoli that Osimhen cannot waste energy and exert himself when he arrives in the box if he wants to increase his goalscoring tally.

The striker, who had a cap with the Italian national team and scored more than 100 times for Chievo, said while Osimhen is a good player he’s not like Cavani who runs the whole game and always scores .

“What happens to Napoli’s attack? Unfortunately, results come if attackers score goals. Napoli had problems with players, someone was separated for a few games, it’s not not easy when you are not full or at 100%, you miss those who scored a lot of goals until recently.

“Where does Osimhen need to improve? A striker should always score goals and waste as little energy as possible. There are few Cavani, who continue to run throughout the game and even score goals. I like Osimhen, but he must not waste energy, he must have more opportunities in peace without arriving tired from having chased the ball all the time”, he added. he declares.

Italy manager Gianluca Aztori compared Osimhen to Cavani in October and said his hunger resembled that of the Manchester United star.

Cavani has scored 53 league goals in 69 Serie A appearances for Napoli.
