Former Napoli striker Andrea Carnevale says his club’s record signing Victor Osimhen must learn to be selfish towards his teammates in order for him to score more goals.
Osimhen joined the Blues from Lille for a record deal of €81m, which includes performance-related add-ons, but has struggled to hit the ground running and replicate the form which led to his signing from France.
The 21-year-old has made six appearances across all competitions, scored just a goal and recorded another assist.
In an interview, Carnevale said that Osimhen’s quality cannot be questioned but he surprisingly advise the Nigeria international to be less generous to his teammates.
“For me, the Napoli squad is very strong. Together with that of Inter it can challenge Juve.
“I know Osimhen. For me, he is very strong. I advised him to be less generous towards his teammates and to start dedicating himself to scoring, because he has many in his legs.”
Napoli will face Sassuolo in the match-day six of the Italian Serie A at the San Paolo stadium.
Both teams head into today’s game with 11 points appease with Napoli sitting third on the log as a result of their goal superiority.
