Napoli star Victor Osimhen acknowledges it was ‘important’ to start well for Napoli and reveals what Khvicha Kvaratskhelia told him minutes before his goal.

The Nigeria international scored one goal in the Partenopei’s 5-2 over Verona at the Stadio Bentegodi. New signing Kvaratskhelia also got his name on the scoresheet.

“I’m really happy, it was important to start well. Spalletti trusts me and we are on good terms,” Osimhen told DAZN.

“I am not the kind of player who sets a target for goals. I want to help the team by scoring, the team comes first.

“Kvaratskhelia? Two minutes before the goal, he told me that he expected me to score. We are on good terms, I’ve been here for three years and am helping him settle in. We’ve seen what kind of player he is.”
