Roma coach Jose Mourinho has compared Victor Osimhen to prime Didier Drogba after his brilliant display in Napoli’s 2-1 victory over Roma.
According to the former Chelsea boss, Osimhen is comparable to Ivorian legend Didier Drogba but established the need for the Nigerian to do better.
“And if you want me to compare him with Drogba, I would say, the level is there but Drogba would never dive,” the former Manchester United gaffer told a post-match press conference.
“If Victor changes, then OK. I’d buy him if I was at a club with a lot of money. However, if he does go to England one day, he needs to change, because in Italy they put up with this sort of behaviour, whereas in the Premier League, they’d come down hard on him.”
He revealed that he also spoke to Osimhen after the match.
“I told him that he scored a wonderful goal and needs to stop diving so much. His goal was fantastic, he did the same thing when we met earlier this season, so he’s a fantastic player. But he mustn’t dive,” he added.
