‘Osimhen knows how to hurt people,’ Cannavaro praises Napoli star

Former Italy defender Fabio Cannavaro has labelled Napoli forward Victor Osimhen as deadly and one who knows how to hurt opponents.

Osimhen, 22, is having a good run of form with Napoli and has scored four times in six Serie A appearances this season.

Cannavaro believes Napoli have what it takes to win the Scudetto this season and praised Osimhen.

“This Napoli are solid,” the former Ballon d’Or winner told Tribal Football. “They can win the Scudetto. But beware of the two sides from Milan.

“Spalletti’s team looks like a wall at times and have different solutions. [Victor] Osimhen was thought to be a crazy horse, but in the box, he knows how to hurt the opponents.

“Never rule out Juventus, they know how to manage the difficult moments and will be able to return.”

Osimhen was named Serie A Player of the Month for September following his blistering start to the 2021-22 season.
