Published

on

Ex-Italy international, Fabrizio Ravanelli, believes Super Eagle Victor Osimhen was the biggest failure in Napoli’s 1-0 Serie A defeat to Inter Milan last Wednesday.

Ravanelli believes Osimhen highlighted the shortcomings of Napoli players in their away defeat at the Sansiro.

Edin Dzeko scored the only goal in the 56th minute after heading in Federico Dimarco’s cross from the left.

Ravanelli who was full of praise for Inter, who ensured they kept their slim hopes of winning the Scudetto alive by claiming maximum points against the league leaders said, “Inter played a great match, they have many merits because they played a match like the one with Barcelona (in UEFA Champions League), big heart, great defence, and great pressing,” Ravanelli said as quoted by Napoli Magazine.

“He wanted the victory with character and he deserved it, for Napoli several important players failed, one above all Osimhen. Napoli did less than their possibilities.”
