Super Eagles striker Victor Osimhen says he’s delighted to sign for Napoli and desperate to do well for the club.
Osimhen was presented to the media for the first time by the club on Wednesday after joining from Lille for a club-record fee of €80million.
Osimhen told the media that he’s not under pressure to justify the huge investment made in him by the club, but he’s just interested in doing well for the club.
“The highest-paid player at Napoli? Being here means that I have taken a big leap. I’m not interested in money. I intend to give my best.
”Joining Napoli is a dream come true. I am happy to play in any role, I’m happy to be here. I have fantastic teammates.”
“Being here means that I have made a big leap in my career. I want to do well in this blue jersey.”
On his relationship with the manager, Gennaro Gattuso, and club’s President Aurelio De Laurentiis, he has this to say: “For a young player like me, motivation is important. The president and the coach made me feel at home immediately.
“I have always been convinced that Napoli was the best choice for me and for my future.”
“I have an excellent relationship with Gattuso and De Laurentiis, for me they are like fathers. I have received great affection from the fans.
“I spoke to Gattuso and De Laurentiis, and that was the moment that I decided to accept Napoli. I received love from them. Motivation is fundamental.” he said.
