Rudi Garcia, the manager of Napoli, has recently voiced his concerns regarding Victor Osimhen’s defensive performance. In a match against Frosinone, Osimhen exhibited his offensive prowess by scoring two goals. However, Garcia expressed disappointment with Osimhen’s reduced involvement in defensive plays during the game.
Garcia pointed out that Osimhen had been more engaged in defensive actions in the past, especially in terms of pressing the opposition. He had a conversation with Osimhen during the game’s halftime break to address this issue. While Garcia acknowledged Osimhen’s capabilities in front of the goal, he stressed the importance of a balanced approach that encompasses both offensive and defensive contributions.
The story also briefly alluded to the earlier speculations surrounding Osimhen’s potential departure from Napoli during the recent summer transfer window. Notable clubs such as Chelsea, Manchester United, Bayern Munich, Paris Saint-Germain, and others reportedly expressed interest in signing him. However, as per the latest reports, it seems Osimhen is likely to remain with Napoli for at least the upcoming season, with negotiations for a contract extension reportedly underway.
