Napoli Captain Lorenzo Insigne Praises Osimhen And Compares Him To Cavani.

Napoli captain Lorenzo Insigne has praised Victor Osimhen for his impact in Sunday’s away win at Parma and likened the young forward to Edison Cavani, reports.

Gennaro Gattuso’s side struggled to break down their opponent in the first half but Osimhen’s introduction two minutes after the hour mark helped change the complexion of the game.

Napoli took the lead in the 64nd minute through Dries Mertens with Insigne scoring the second goal 13 minutes from time.

“It is a great satisfaction, it was important to win and we did it. We wanted to make this debut, we were very focused and the result is well deserved,”
Insigne told the club’s official website.

“Surely there were not only positive sides, we made some mistakes that we have to evaluate with the coach during the week. In the first half we lacked the right sporting amalice in the offensive phase”.
“We grew as a conviction in the second half, Osimhen’s entry also helped us and we found the way to goal in a few minutes.”

“Victor is an attacker who has great speed, has complementary and different characteristics compared to me and Dries and can represent a different solution for the attack.
“In some places he reminds me of Cavani, for his ability to attack the goal and physical strength”.
