Luciano Spalleti has confirmed that striker Victor Osimhen will not start Napoli’s Europa League game against Legia Warsaw this Thursday.

Napoli are still without a win in the Europa League after two games and can’t afford not pick the maximum points against Legia Warsaw if they want to progress out of the Group.

Osimhen has been in good form for Napoli this season – scoring nine goals in his last eight game for the Club, but Spalleti isn’t tempted to start him again the Legia Warsaw.

“I won’t let him play from the start, but the boy has athletic qualities that allow him to regenerate immediately “

“Those who will go on the pitch are competitive to play a match of strength and quality. We want to dedicate a good evening to our fans. We also wanted to do it with Spartak, we will try to do it tomorrow with all our commitment” He said.

Napoli are bottom of the Group with just a point from two matches.
