Osimhen Knows How To Capitalise On Half Chance –Mourinho
Roma manager, Jose Mourinho has described Super Eagles striker, Victor Osimhen as a player that knows how to convert half chances in a game.
The Portuguese tactician made this known after the Nigerian international netted the match winner in Napoli’s 1-0 win over Roma in Sunday’s Serie A clash.
Fed with a route-one ball from Mateo Politano, Osimhen wrestled off the holding Chris Smalling before delivering a stunner from the most impossible of angles.
Reacting to Osimhen’s performance, Mourinho lauded him for his ability to take advantage of any opportunity that comes his way.

“We have to be more decisive upfront, what lodges into the statistics are the shots on goal.
“Then I also look at the half opportunities, those that you have to transform into opportunities as Osimhen did,” Mourinho told DAZN after the game.

Following a season and a half at the club, he moved to Belgian side Charleroi on loan in 2018–19, before moving to France at Lille. In 2020, Osimhen transferred to Serie A club Napoli for a club-record fee of €70 million. He won the Serie A Best Young Player award in the 2021–22 season.
Osimhen won the Golden Boot award at the 2015 FIFA U-17 World Cup, which Nigeria won. He made his senior international debut in June 2017 and played at the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations.
