In the summer, Osimhen arrived as a deputy, but also yesterday – without the Nigerian on the pitch – John Simon Leave outside. He entered the last five minutes of the match against Monza, after Gaetano and Lindstrom. A desperate move by Mazzarri, who has played 116 minutes since arriving at Napoli. Before yesterday's game, he had only played one stoppage time against Juventus, one half – and one goal – at the Bernabeu with Real Madrid and a half hour in the Coppa Italia with Frosinone.
More space for Simeone? – Cholito is not happy with the situation. He wants to play more and has informed the coach of this. In a few days, Osimhen will leave for the Africa Cup of Nations, there will be more space in attack and Simeone is ready to challenge Raspadori (who started yesterday) for a starting place. There is a good relationship between the Argentine and the coach. The player did not do anything that would push Mazzarri or push him away, and the choices were only of a technical nature.. However, Giovanni never stops working with his head down, he trains with intensity and a desire to prove that this place can be his.
Cholito Market – Meanwhile, he looks around. Because the market is on us If given the opportunity to play with more consistency, Simeone could seriously evaluate it. In the summer Monza thought about it but did not discuss it further, at the moment no one has come forward but the player could be useful for those looking for a striker with his characteristics. So far, Napoli are not considering selling Choleto, who was acquired from Verona for 15 million between loan and redemption, but the player now wants guarantees about his status in the team.
