Champions League: Fabio Capello makes claim about Osimhen

Champions League: Fabio Capello makes claim about Osimhen

Former England manager, Fabio Capello, has claimed that the availability of Napoli striker Victor Osimhen will make the difference in their Champions League quarter-final first-leg tie against AC Milan on Wednesday night.

Napoli are hopeful that Osimhen will be fit for the clash against AC Milan at home.

Osimhen is still recuperating from a muscle injury.

The Nigerian international suffered a tear in his adductor muscle whilst on international duty with the Super Eagles last month.

“Napoli has strengths and weaknesses. One? Di Lorenzo’s one-on-one with Leao is hard. Milan will think about this, then it will depend on Osimhen,” Capello told La Gazzetta dello Sport.

“If he doesn’t play, it’s 50-50. If he plays, he moves 5% by himself.

“Pioli these days will have to understand how not to let him get the ball while Spalletti will work on his head: he must convince Napoli that they are fine, even if in Lecce.”
