Victor Osimhen after Napoli’s title win: “Now is not the time to think about my future”

Victor Osimhen has stated that now is not the right time to think about his future, as Napoli sealed the Scudetto for the first time in 33 years.

Napoli needed a point from the game at Udinese and a goal from Osimhen made sure that they picked up 1-1 draw in Udine. While the celebrations were manic at the Dacia Arena, the jam-packed Maradona went ballistic not just when Osimhen scored but also when the Scudetto was confirmed.

Osimhen has enjoyed a sensational season and he has now gone past Samuel Eto’o for the most number of goals by an African player in a single Serie A season.

After the title win, he spoke to Sky about the achievement and stated: “I’m thrilled with this victory. 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. Spalletti is a great coach, he asks us a lot but he is like a father to all of us. He always manages to motivate us and he deserves this title”.

The Nigerian has been linked with a host of clubs over the last few months and that includes the likes of Manchester United, Chelsea, Bayern Munich and Paris Saint-Germain. It was recently reported that United and Bayern Munich might not be able to afford the Nigerian, with Real Madrid also in the race.
