Finidi George explains why Osimhen will set Italy alight


Super Eagles legend has likened Victor Osimhen’s change of scene to Italy to Crisitiano Ronaldo.

As Futaa broke the news last week, Osimhen finally completed his move from Lille to Napoli after one of the most complicated negotiations football ever witnessed.

With the focus now turning to what Osimhen is expected to deliver in Serie A, former Ajax Amsterdam forward Finidi, says the Italian game will not pose serious challenges to the 21-year-old striker.

“Why now? He can adapt, Ronaldo for example shone in Spain before going to Italy and everyone thought he’s going to struggle because of the style of play, but he adapted,” Finidi said via Brila.

“So I think Victor can adapt to the style of football in Italy as well and I believe he will surely do well,” he added.

Meanwhile, Osimhen and Napoli face a work permit application delay ahead of the UEFA Champions League last 16 meeting with FC Barcelona.
