Napoli captain Lorenzo Insigne has praised Victor Oseimen influence in the away win over Parma on Sunday and likened the young striker to Edison Cavani.

Gennaro Gattuso’s side struggled to smash their opponents in the first half but Osimen’s introduction two minutes into the hour mark helped change the look of the match.

Napoli took the lead in the 64th minute through Dries Mertens as Insigne scored the second goal 13 minutes before the end.

“It’s very satisfied, it was important to win and we did. We wanted to make this debut, we were very focused and the result was well worth it.”
Insini tell the club’s official website.

“Surely there were not only positive sides, we made some mistakes that we have to evaluate with the coach during the week. In the first half we lacked the right sporting amalice in the offensive phase”.

“We grew as a conviction in the second half, Osimhen’s entry also helped us and we found the way to goal in a few minutes.”

“Victor is an attacker who has great speed, has complementary and different characteristics compared to me and Dries and can represent a different solution for the attack.

“In some places he reminds me of Cavani, for his ability to attack the goal and physical strength”
