Napoli striker Osimhen after Torino win: “Most important goal of my career.”

Napoli striker Victor Osimhen has stated that his strike against Torino was the most important goal of his career so far.

The striker found the back of the net late in the game against Il Toro, helping Luciano Spalletti’s men remain unbeaten in the league. Napoli remain at the top of the table and are the only side to have won all their games in the competition.

After the game, Osimhen spoke to DAZN and he talked about the performance and goal: “It’s amazing to win, for all of us. It was an incredible atmosphere. We deserved to win, also for the statistics today and in general for the whole season. This championship is not easy, we have to continue like this, without stopping.

“Goals? I saw that the ball was coming, I had to anticipate it, it could have been an opportunity. It’s true, I was nervous, they kept pushing and it was getting difficult. It was the most important goal of my career because it was important to win.”

Osimhen has three goals in the Europa League and he has now found the back of the net five times in seven games in Serie A.
