Garcia Expresses Disappointment With Osimhen’s Performance After Napoli Defeat To Lazio


LAGOS SEPTEMBER 4TH (NEWSRANGERS)-Napoli manager Rudi Garcia was not happy with Victor Osimhen’s performance in the 2-1 defeat to Lazio on Sunday night.

The Serie A champions won their opening two games of the campaign, but were stunned by Mauricio Sarri’s side in front of their fans at a packed Diego Armando Maradona Stadium.

Osimhen was caged by the visitors in the thrilling contest.

Garcia expressed his disappointment with the Nigeria international’s performance even though he acknowledged the forward performed better in the first half.

“He (Osimhen) also dropped off in the second half, in the first he didn’t have any sensational opportunities,”Garcia was quoted by Tutto Napoli.

“He is always a burden for the opposing defense, he creates spaces for others. We had opportunities, ambitions, and we were aggressive. But in the second half, none of my players were up to the team’s standards.”

The 24-year-old has scored two goals in three league appearances for Napoli this season.
