Series A: Similarities between Osimhen and Haaland – Capello

Former AC Milan manager Fabio Capello believes that Victor Osimhen and Erling Haaland are similar.

This season, the duo has been prominent for Napoli and Manchester City.

Osimhen has scored 28 goals in 35 appearances in all competitions for newly crowned Serie A champions Napoli.

The 24-year-old is now the highest-scoring African in the Italian top flight after surpassing the old mark set by former AC Milan striker George Weah.

A Norwegian international, Haaland has scored 51 times in 47 appearances in all competitions for Manchester City.

The striker recently broke the record for most goals scored in a single season in the Premier League.

“I don’t think Haaland is under pressure, because he has anger inside,” Capello told Sky Italia per Napoli Magazine.

“He lives for the goals. Osimhen has the same, they live for this. They fight, they want to win, they help their teammates and they transmit that determination that makes you win games”.
