Napoli coach Luciano Spalletti is delighted with performance of Victor Osimhen, but suggests the striker has to improve.

Osimhen scored the first goal in the Azzurri’s win against Udinese to take his tally to three in all competitions.

Assessing the performance of the Nigeria in Partenopei’s 4-0 win away at Udinese, Spalleti said Osimhen’s performance makes him happy, but still lacks the quality to operate in tight space.

“We have quality in attack. Osimhen is really strong, he lacks quality in tight spaces, but it’s hard to catch him in open spaces.” he said.

The victory took Napoli to the top of the table with 12 points and they have been tipped by many to win title this season.

Reacting to the suggestion, Spalleti said “The road is still long and there are many tough opponents.”

“Milan are very strong, Inter have worked well despite a couple of big sales. They brought important players in and they have a strong midfielder.

“Our strength is our environment. We are overwhelmed with love that can become fuel for players. “
