Super Eagles of Nigeria coach Jose Peseiro has revealed the reason Nigeria striker Victor Osimhen is staying with the Italian Serie A giant Napoli.
Apart from scoring over 30 goals in all competitions last season, Osimhen put up a superb performance that caught the attention of the bigger European teams.
Despite interest from various teams, the energetic attacker remained glue at the Naple-based club.
The Portuguese gaffer while speaking to the news outlet revealed that Napoli president Aurelio De Laurentiis was the reason Osimhen did not move this summer.
” We all know him, he was the one who put Napoli where it is.
A club that was in bad shape financially and that has done a fantastic job to make Napoli champion of Italy.
“It was he who did everything to not sell Osimhen, or sell him at the price he wants”, he said.
