Even ‘physical freak’ Victor Osimhen had trouble with Cristian Romero.
Osimhen is a Nigerian striker. He played for Wolfsburg, Royal Charleroi (on loan), and LOSC Lille before joining Napoli in the summer of 2020. He was a prolific goalscorer. He produced 10 goals and three assists in 30 games in 2020-21, 18 goals and six assists in 32 games in 2021-22, and 31 goals and five assists in 39 games in 2022-23. Last season, he was the top scorer in Serie A with 26 goals and helped his team win its first Scudetto in 33 years.
Osimhen continues to impress this season with six goals and one assist in 10 games. On the 29th (KST), he told ‘TVPLAY’, “Romero is the most difficult defender I’ve ever played against. The first time I faced him, I was impressed by his speed. And I experienced a very intense contest. It was a shock,” he said.
Osimhen has never faced Argentina for the Nigerian national team, so Serie A is presumably his destination. Romero has played in Italy before moving to Tottenham. He performed well for Genoa and Atalanta, most notably being named 토토사이트 Serie A’s best defender in the 2020-21 season with Atalanta. The meeting Osimhen is referring to is believed to be between Napoli and Atalanta.
Romero has continued to perform remarkably well since moving to Tottenham. This season, he was named vice-captain and has shown leadership. Spurs are leading the Premier League with their center back combination of Romero and Mickey van der Penne.
