Why Osimhen Is Not Starting Against Leece  Napoli Boss Garcia


Napoli manager Rudi Garcia has explained why Victor Osimhen is benched for this afternoons Serie A clash Leece.

Garcia also assured that the TikTok video controversy will take care of itself.

Osimhen scored and bagged an assist in Napolis 4-1 win against Udinese in midweek in the aftermath of the TikTok row with the Partenopei.

The 24-year-old is however named among the substitutes for the Leece clash.


The lads know they must be fully concentrated on this match, because it is already a few days after the last game and it is played under the sun and heat. This is no friendly, Lecce have had a great start to the season and we must be at 100 per cent physically and mentally to get a result, Garcia was quoted by Football Italia.

There has to be squad rotation, it is almost a third of the team that changed since the game with Udinese, so its natural to look to everyone, including those who come off the bench.

He added: The extra-sport issue is not important, I prefer to talk about what happens on the field and Osimhen has scored four goals in six games. The rest will take care of itself.
