Coach who led Napoli to their first Scudetto win weighs in on Garcia-Osimhen issue

The issue between Osimhen and Garcia seems to be resolved, but Bianchi has shared his opinion


Ottavio Bianchi, the coach who led Napoli to their first Scudetto win in 1989, believes Victor Osimhen should respect Rudi Garcia’s position as the coach to avoid clashes, Soccernet reports.


Two weeks ago, in Napoli’s goalless draw at Bologna, Osimhen showed his annoyance when Garcia took him out for Giovanni Simeone a few minutes before the end of the game. The 24-year-old Nigerian striker was clearly complaining that the Italian gaffer should have left him on the pitch and played two strikers.
