Nigeria and Napoli forward Victor Osimhen has taken to social media to express his admiration and appreciation for departed Napoli boss Gennaro Gattuso.
You have been instrumental towards my development, not just as a player but also as a man,” Osimhen wrote in a post on Instagram. “I really appreciate all you do for me on and off the pitch.
“I admired you as a player and to be able to work under you and call you my BOSS is something I will never forget in a rush. I hold you in high esteem forever. I wish you all the very best on your new adventure BOSS.”
Napoli confirmed Gattuso will leave the club after their final Serie A game against Hellas Verona which ended 1-1 and dropped the team to fifth for Europa League football next season.
Gattuso took over Napoli in 2019 and won the Coppa Italia in his first season. He signed Osimhen at the beginning of the season and the striker scored 10 goals in 24 games in an injury-plagued season.
