Super Eagles technical adviser, Gernot Rohr has backed Victor Osimhen to make a big impact at Serie A for his club, Napol.
Osimhen moved to Napoli from Ligue 1 club, Lille in July.
The 21-year-old has already hit the ground running in his new environment with six goals and one assist in two pre-season games.
Rohr believed the young striker has what it takes to be a success at Napoli.
“Victor Osimhen is a great player, he is very important to us and he will be even more important, thanks to the experience he will get in a top club like Napoli. Despite his young age, he has many qualities and will show them in Italy,” Rohr told SSC Napoli News.
“Osimhen is not like Drogba yet, but he could become so by working hard to enhance his talents. He is intelligent and prepared, he knows how to adapt to his teammates and systems. He has body and speed, and above all, he’s an excellent finisher.”
Rohr also insisted that Osimhen has the right mentality to cope with racism issues in Italy.
“Racism? I don’t think this will be a problem for Victor (Osimhen). He has already lived through his experiences in France, Germany and Belgium, where there have been difficult situations to overcome. He is very strong mentally.”
