De Laurentiis urges Napoli fans to be patient with Osimhen

De Laurentiis urges Napoli fans to be patient with Osimhen


The forward has already hit the ground running, scoring in his first pre-season game for the Stadio San Paolo outfit on Monday.

De Laurentiis, who was one of the spectators during the game, urged the club supporters that the forward has been inactive since Ligue 1 was prematurely concluded due to the coronavirus pandemic in March as such should be tolerant with the 21-year-old. 

“The fans ought to be patient with him because Osimhen hasn’t played in seven months and still needs to get to know Italian football,” De Laurentiis told Radio Kiss Kiss.

“I urge the fans to give him time and space, so he can help the team. Rino Gattuso won’t give anyone an easy time.

“I see every now and then the media say I paid €47m! Evidently, I ought to start publishing the contracts. In Germany, where they are very reliable, they always talk about gross wages and not net.”

The forward bagged 18 goals and provided six assists across all competitions and scooped the club’s Player of the Season including the best African player award for his efforts.
