Sandro Mazzola has confessed he “loses sleep” whenever Nigeria’s Super Eagles striker, Victor Osimhen is on the ball and moving.

The 22-year-old player has been in great form for the Parthenopeans in Serie A this campaign, managing to score five goals from 10 appearances.

On Sunday, Napoli will look to extend their 12-match unbeaten run when they take on Inter Milan in a top-flight fixture at San Siro Stadium.

According to the legendary Nerazzurri striker Mazzola, Inter should be wary of the threat posed by the former Lille forward.

“There is that centre-forward there, Victor [Osimhen], who is really strong. It makes me lose sleep. Every time he touches the ball he manages to amaze me; it’s surprising,” Mazzola told Kiss Kiss Napoli as quoted by notizie-inter.it.

Mazzola, who managed 417 appearances in his career with Inter and scored 116 goals, was also full of praise for Napoli manager Luciano Spalletti but warned his team could suffer their first defeat of the season against Inter.

“Luciano [Spalletti] is a coach I like very much, I have always defended him,” Mazzola continued.

“Given this, I say also that on Sunday, on the occasion of the match between Inter and Napoli, we will punish him.

“We need a victory against the Neapolitans otherwise goodbye the Scudetto. If we overtake Napoli, on the other hand, we would still have the chance to get back into the race.”

While Napoli are topping the 20-team table with 32 points from 12 matches, Inter are in third with 25 points from 12 outings.
