Why I snubbed English clubs for Napoli – Victor Osimhen explains

Nigerian promising star and Napoli footballer, Victor Osimhen, explain why he ignored several English clubs and opted for the Italian club.

NEWSCASTARS.COM gathered that while he was speaking in an interview with Cafonline.com, Osimhen said he turned down the opportunity of playing in the English Premier League for Serie A because he felt Napoli was the best choice for him.

The 21-year-old said;

“Many predicted I will move to the EPL, and I had a lot of interesting offers from some clubs. But Napoli was the best choice for me,”.


“It was so because of the kind of player I want to be in the future, and the kind of great career I want to have. I have no doubt that Napoli is the club I need to achieve that greater height.


“The relationship between me and Coach (Gennaro Gattuso) and the president (Aurelio De Laurentiis) is a very interesting one because even before I came to Napoli, I spoke with both. They convinced me, even more, to sign for Napoli. The relationship is going very well, and I just want to repay them on the pitch for the trust they have in me.”
