The league or the golden boot? Osimhen wants them all

Published on: 02 March 2023

Napoli striker Victor Osimhen has revealed he will like to win both the league highest goal scorer award and the Scudetto with Partenopei, reports.

The Serie A club have been remarkable season with an 18-point margin between them and Inter in second place. 

Just as the Azzurri, Osimhen tops the scorers chart with 19 goals from 20 league matches. And with Napoli  looking more likely to win the league for the first time in 33 years, the 24 year-old wants both the league and Golden shoe this season.

“We are in March and there is still some time to go. But yes, I want it all, we want it all,” he told Corriere della Sera.  

“We are giving our lives to achieve this level of success. We deserve it and we are sacrificing everything to achieve it.”

“We’re almost there, but we can’t afford to let ourselves get distracted right now. Our mentality is always the same, in Italy and in Europe: impose ourselves on the opposition and win.”

The strike partnership with Khvicha Kvaratskhelia has been nothing short of impressive as the duo has combined 33 goals this season.

“There has been empathy from the very first moment. He’s a strong player, but also a great person and this, to me, counts,” said the striker.
