Inter Milan legend, Sandro Mazzola, has hailed Super Eagles’ Star, Victor Osimhen, ahead of the Italian defending champions and Napoli clash in the Serie A on Sunday.
He commended Osimhen for his blistering form and said he loses sleep anytime Napoli’s goal machine was with the ball.
The former Lille striker has established himself as one of the important players in Napoli team, having scored five goals from 10 appearances for the Italian team.
Luciano Spalleti’s men have gone 12 games unbeaten in the league and are eager to extend their unbeaten tally to 13 in a clash with Inter at San Siro Stadium.
Speaking with Journalists, former inter striker, Mazzola was full of praise for 22 years old Nigerian International.
“Spalletti’s team is not to be underestimated. There is that centre-forward there, Victor Osimhen, who is really strong. He makes me lose sleep. Every time he touches the ball he manages to amaze me; it’s surprising.”
Mazzola, who made 417 appearances in his career with Inter and scored 116 goals, said Spalletti was a manager he liked but warned his team could suffer their first defeat of the season against Inter.
“We need a victory against the Neapolitans otherwise goodbye to the Scudetto. If we overtake Napoli, on the other hand, we would still have the chance to get back into the race.”
Napoli currently top the league log with 32 points, the same number with AC Milan and seven points more than Inter after 12 matches.
