Super Eagles boss Jose Peseiro is at the Diego Armando Maradona Stadium to watch Osimhen's Napoli take on Lookman's Atalanta
Super Eagles head coach Jose Peseiro is among the spectators at the Diego Armando Maradona stadium for the game between Napoli and Atalanta.
The runaway league leaders are looking to return to winning ways against Atalanta by bouncing back from last week's 1-0 defeat to Lazio.
Jose Peseiro in Naples to watch Osimhen and Lookman
Super Eagles boss Jose Peseiro was sighted in the stands watching the Serie A game between Napoli and Atalanta.
The 62-year-old is there to watch two Super Eagles stars in Osimhen and Lookman, both players who have been lighting up Serie A this season.
And although Osimhen leads the line for Napoli as always this season, Peseiro would have been disappointed to find out Lookman was dropped to the bench.
Lookman's exclusion stems from his goal drought for Atalanta which goes back to the last six games having previously scored 14 goals in 20 games preceeding that across all competitions.
Osimhen on the other hand has no such problems as he currently sits top of the scoring charts in Serie A with 19 goals in 22 games and 21 in 26 across all competitions.
Meanwhile in other news, Super Eagles coach Peseiro spoke about his star striker Victor Osimhen before the game.
Peseiro comments on Osimhen's Ballon d'Or chances
Peseiro hailed Osimhen and applauded his superb season but expressed doubt at the ability of his star striker to win the Ballon d'Or.
“Victor Osimhen is an exceptional player. He has all the qualities of a great striker, and he can play for any top club in the world, whether in the Premier League or elsewhere,” Peseiro said.
Peseiro continued, “I don’t know if he’ll win the Ballon d’Or, but I’ll say this: he’ll certainly win the top scorer (award) many times. Because he has an impressive scoring ability.”
