"Osimhen will pay for mistake" - Gattuso

Sun 03 January 2021 | 18:08

Napoli's boss, Gennaro Gattuso didn't feel totally happy after Napoli won Cagliari 4-1 and informs Victor Osimhen will "pay for a silly mistake."

Napoli

finished their weak run of three matches without a Serie A triumph.

“I’ve always said that Zielinski dances on the ball and can do incredible things, a change of pace or direction that gives the defenders no chance,”

Gattuso

said.

“He has everything it takes to become a great player. He’s just lacking a little determination in the final third. If we are playing the 4-2-3-1 formation, it’s because he is able to play as a support for the striker. Zielinski is a very important player for us.”

Despite the success,

Gattuso

was not satisfied with the overall performance.

“We can’t create 10 scoring opportunities and take so few of them. Considering all the forwards we are missing right now, we still got into the final third 20 times and lacked determination. That’s what angered me the most, as it’s an issue of mentality.”

Osimhen

, after dislocating his shoulder on international duty, threw a birthday party in Nigeria and got COVID-19.

“When I made a mistake, Marcello Lippi used to say he’d let me stew in my own juices for a while, to recognize what I’d done. That’s what Osimhen has to do now.

“He has already apologized, he’s a lad who gives his all when working. He made a silly mistake, he knows that. I am a coach, I don’t decide fines, especially as I was the one who gave the all-clear for him to return to Nigeria and so both of us were left embarrassed by what happened.

“He made a mistake and he will pay what he needs to pay.”
