Six goals in two games! Osimhen scores another hat-trick in Napoli frThe Nigeria international, continued his fine start to life with the Italian outfit with another three goals on Friday
Victor Osimhen scored another hat-trick for Napoli in their 4-0 win over Serie C club Teramo in a pre-season friendly match.
Osimhen played a starring role in Friday’s encounter as the Serie A outfit ended their pre-season training camp in Castel di Sangro on a flying note.
Last Friday, the Super Eagles striker kicked off his career in Gennaro Gattuso’s team with an eight-minute hat-trick against L’Aquila – an encounter that ended 11-0.
He continued from where he left off with the opening goal for the Partenopei in the fourth minute.
Osimhen made it three for Napoli a minute after the hour-mark and he completed his hat-trick in the 65th minute.
Algeria’s Faouzi Ghoulam and Senegal’s Kalidou Koulibaly were also in action for the Stadio San Paolo outfit alongside the 21-year-old.
Following the conclusion of their pre-season camp, the former Lille talisman will be aiming to intensify his preparation for the 2020-21 Serie A season before Gattuso’s side visit Parma for their opening fixture on September 20.
Osimhen’s goalscoring start to life at the club has caught the attention of the Archbishop of Naples, Crescenzio Sepe, and he hopes to see the Nigerian score more goals for the team.
“What I said to Victor Osimhen? We talked and I said to him: ‘ You have scored 3 goals in 7 minutes, next time you have to score 5 goals in 5 minutes, you have to score almost every minute, do you understand?’,” Sepe said.
“And did he understand? No, not so much: he doesn’t speak Italian… I communicated in Neapolitan, somehow we got along. He is happy, I saw it from his face regardless of the language we spoke. I congratulated him and all the players.”
