No better place to be – Osimhen speaks on leaving Napoli.
Napoli striker, Victor Osimhen, has said he intends to stay with the Serie A champions by insisting there is “no better place to be than here”.
The Super Eagles star scored 31 goals in 39 appearances last season as Napoli clinched the Scudetto for the first time in 33 years.
In the off-season, Osimhen has been attracting interest from Chelsea, Manchester United and Liverpool.
Napoli will demand over 100 million for the 24-year-old, who was named Serie A Striker of the Year.
However, speaking with SoccerNet, Osimhen said: “I have never seen a city crazier about football like the way the Neapolitans are.
“They show all their players love. And wherever I go, I am respected. Kids love me, a lot of people admire me, and they idolize me by putting on a replica of my mask.
“It shows the hard work I have given to them and what I mean to them. And for me, there’s no better place to be than this place.
“I am so happy I made the right choice by coming here.”
