'He has speed' - Legendary Italy defender Bergomi hails Osimhen ahead of Inter vs NapoliPublished: November 18, 2021
Legendary Italy and Inter Milan defender Giuseppe Bergomi has praised Victor Osimhen ahead of the standout Serie A fixture this weekend between the Nerazzurri and Napoli at Stadio Giuseppe Meazza.
The Nigeria international will be desperate to add to his goal tally having fired blanks in his last three matches in the division before the last international break of the season.
Bergomi highlighted the threat of Osimhen to Inter Milan's hopes of securing a win against Napoli and singled out the Nigerian as the striker who has impressed him the most in the current campaign.
The 1982 World Cup winner reckons that Osimhen has the same influence as Romelu Lukaku had at Inter Milan before his switch to Chelsea.
Asked if it would have been hard for him to mark Osimhen, Bergomi told Il Mattino via Stylo24 : "Mine was another football, but Osimhen gave me a good impression, he has speed and physical strength.
"I have to admit that he is the striker who has impressed me the most in this championship. "
Osimhen resumed training at Napoli on Thursday after starring for the Super Eagles in World Cup qualifying matches against Liberia and Cape Verde.
