“I will forever be grateful to this league and this competition because they exposed me more to the world. I am always a work-in-progress striker, as I have a lot to improve.
It has been amazing in terms of my hold-up play, my goal-scoring prowess and a big kudos to Spalletti and his backroom staff, they have improved me.
“The confidence the team also gave me in feeling that I am a leader has helped me improve. Also a big kudos to the Napoli fans.
When I arrived, I went through some difficult times, but they gave me the energy and supported me, making me the striker that I am today.”
Apart from winning the league title, Osimhen is currently the top scorer in the league with 22 goals.
