0 53

Victor Osimhen says it’s too early about talking about his future after his side claimed historic Scudetto in Udinese.

Napoli striker has played down the move from Serie A to Premier League following their success winning the Scudetto following a 1-1 draw against Udinese.

The Nigerian striker was on target in the game which help his side clinch the first trophy since after club legend Maradona.

Osimhen, who has been on the rather of premier league clubs like Chelsea and Manchester United says it’s not time to talk about his future now.

Speaking to Sky Sport Italia, Osimhen said he “couldn’t wait’ to get back to Naples and enjoy the Scudetto with the fans.

“I’m thrilled with this victory,” Osimhen said. ‘I’m happy for me, for the team and for the fans.

“I can’t wait to come back in Naples to embrace our fans, even though tonight I already felt the warmth of the people. I’m happy for all the Neapolitans.

“I scored the Scudetto goal, it’s true, but anyone else could have scored it.

“I feel like a leader and I never give up. Future? Now I want to enjoy this historic moment, this is not the time to think about my future.”

the end of last season, Spalletti’s Fiat Panda was stolen and allegedly held hostage by fans who unfurled a banner that said the car would only be returned if he quit.

But after overseeing an unimaginable season, and becoming the oldest manager to win a Scudetto, all is likely forgiven.

“Spalletti is a great coach, he asks us a lot but he is like a father to all of us,” Osimhen continued.

“He always manages to motivate us and he deserves this title.”
