Maradona hails Osimhen


Diego Armando Maradona Junior, Diego Maradona’s son has hailed Nigerian international Victor Osimhen as a 30 goal striker.

He believes Osimhen will excel in the Italian Serie A with the striker having netted two hat-tricks in pre-season.

The younger Maradona, who represented Italy at the 2008 FIFA Beach Soccer World Cup, has highlighted Osimhen’s qualities.

“He is a forward with a great prospect, he has hallucinating room for improvement. If put in the right conditions, he can become a 30 goal striker. He’s just 21.”

“I have expressed some doubts about his construction phase when it comes to tying up the game.

“He doesn’t have to do it too much, it doesn’t have to be his first goal. He is good at attacking depth and if he has space in front it hurts,” he added.
