Don’t compare Osimhen with Drogba – Rohr

Nigeria coach, Gernot Rohr, has asked Nigerians to stop comparing new Napoli forward, Victor Osimhen with Chelsea and Ivory Coast legend, Didier Drogba.

Rohr believes that Osimhen is not yet on the same pedestal with celebrated Drogba.

Rohr, according to ilnapolionline citing Il Mattino, said: “He (Osimhen) is not yet like Drogba, he could become one by working hard to enhance his skills.

“I saw in the Champions League how Napoli plays, Victor will be able to take advantage of the spaces created by his new teammates.

“He is intelligent and prepared; he knows how to adapt to his companions and the game system. Deadly in spaces, he can play as first striker or with a partner.

“He has physique and speed, excellent left and right and above all great feeling with the goal.”

Osimhen is expected to make his Serie A debut in Napoli’s season opener against Parma.
