Nigerian professional footballer, Victor Osimhen put up a stellar, five-star performance during a pre-season game over the weekend under his new Manager, Luciano Spalletti after scoring four goals for Napoli.
Napoli took on Italian side Anaunia in Dimaro Folgarida in a club friendly game, winning by an emphatic 12 goals to nil.
Victor Osimhen, who played his first pre-season game for his club in preparation for the 2021/2022 season, scored all his four goals of the match in the first half before he was substituted by Andrea Petagna in the second half.
It will be recalled that the last meeting between these two sides in a friendly game was in 2017 and it was the same avalanche of goals as Napoli defeated Anaunia by 17-0.
The Super Eagles forward is highly loved by the fans after scoring 10 goals for Napoli in 24 games under his former manager, Gennaro Gattuso in the 2020/2021 season before the sacking of the coach.
Gattuso was sacked as Napoli manager on the last day of the Serie A league season after he failed to secure a 4th place position to qualify for the Champions League spot in the coming season after a 1-1 draw at home against Verona despite Victor Osimhen’s performance for the season.
Fiorentina who announced the appointment of Gattuso as their Club’s new Head Coach on May 25, 2021 some days after the 2020/2021 season ended, was seen to have parted ways in less than 24 days after his appointment.
Luciano Spalletti, who has been out of managerial job in the last two years was sacked as Inter Milan Manager in May 2019 after securing a fourth place finish on the last day of the 2018/2019 season and was appointed as a replacement for Gennaro Gattuso on May 29, 2021 as the New Head Coach of Napoli.
Many fans believed that his first assignment over the weekend with a huge win margin shows how determined he is to take the club to the next level.
