Edinson Cavani, the former Uruguayan striker, has unveiled the deep admiration his children hold for Victor Osimhen, the forward for Napoli.
Osimhen played a crucial role in Napoli’s historic Scudetto triumph, securing their first league title in over three decades. The Nigerian international showcased his exceptional talent by netting an impressive 23 goals in 30 league appearances, all under the guidance of coach Luciano Spalletti.

Speaking about Osimhen, Cavani praised his unwavering hunger and described him as an incredible player who never gives up. He acknowledged that Osimhen’s determination and competitive spirit set him apart and contribute to his ongoing success.
“He possesses all the qualities necessary to continue his growth and become one of the world’s top strikers. His hunger played a significant role in Napoli’s Scudetto victory,” Cavani added, recognizing Osimhen’s invaluable contribution to the team’s success.
