Rudi Garcia Admits Napoli Better without Osimhen


Rudi Garcia jokingly admitted his Napoli is playing well without injured star striker Victor Osimhen.

Napoli defeated Salernitana 2-0 on Saturday, it’s their third victory in the absence of the Nigerian international.

Garcia without Osimhen, has had Giamoco Raspadori, Kvicha Kvaratskhelia, and Matteo Politano linking up well in the attack.

“He (Osimhen) is a problem and yet we cannot wait for him to come back soon!” joked Garcia.

“I had this reflection too, we have a lot of attacking options, but when we change the tactical system like we did against Milan with a box player like Cholito, then Raspadori as a trequartista, we have that bond between the lines.

“I realize the midfield is helped by Raspadori, who even in the final minutes tracked back like a madman to help out. Someone who cares that much about the team is a valuable presence.”

Speaking on how the team has adjusted in the absence of last season’s top scorer, Garcia revealed he has changed system to adapt to loss of Osimhen.

“It depends on the moment, on the squad I have at my disposal at that moment, on the opponent and the competition. Obviously, the players know the 4-3-3 off by heart, but the problem is that our opponents know it well too, so we need other weapons in our armoury.”​

Victor Osimhen is down with hamstring injury and currently recovering in Nigeria.
