Despite being the reigning Serie A champions, Napoli’s defense of their Scudetto title has been disappointing, as they currently sit in 9th place, trailing Bologna by 8 points in the race for Champions League football.

Having gone through three different managers this season, Napoli recently appointed Slovakian head coach Francesco Calzona on an interim basis, with hopes of revitalizing the team and securing a strong finish to the season.

Osimhen’s outstanding performance against Sassuolo further underscores his importance to Napoli’s success. The 25-year-old striker has been in scintillating form, scoring 5 goals in his last 3 games since returning from AFCON, including the memorable hat-trick against Sassuolo.

Following the match, Napoli’s new boss emphasized Osimhen’s crucial role in the team’s aspirations for Champions League qualification next season.

“I believe in our chances until mathematics rule us out,” said Calzona. “Victor needed to regain his rhythm after AFCON, and he showed great commitment. The same applies to Kvara, who was struggling. I will never lose faith in these players; they are important to me,” he added, as quoted by The Napoli Zone.
