“He needs to stop diving”, Osimhen on same level with Drogba – Mourinho

Victor Osimhen's transfer to Napoli under investigation over suspected fraud

Jose Mourinho, the manager of Roma, believes Victor Osimhen is on the same level as former Chelsea striker Didier Drogba.

On Sunday night, Osimhen scored a spectacular goal as Napoli defeated Roma 2-1 to extend their lead at the top of the table to 13 points.

When the two teams met earlier in the season at the Stadio Olimpico, the Nigeria international scored a similar goal.

Mourinho was asked about the comparison between Osimhen and Drogba during a press conference following the game on Sunday night.

“He is of the same level as Drogba, but Didier didn’t dive,” replied Mourinho.

“If Victor changes, then okay. I’d buy him if I was at a club with a lot of money. However, if he does go to England one day, he needs to change, because in Italy they put up with this sort of behaviour, whereas in the Premier League, they’d come down hard on him.”

Osimhen is currently the leading scorer in Serie A with 14 goals from 16 matches.

His compatriot, Ademola Lookman is second with 12 goals.
