According to reports in France, Victor Osimhen advised Napoli not to go for his former LOSC coach Christophe Galtier, who was just fired by PSG.
The Partenopei need a new tactician after Luciano Spalletti decided to walk away, having won the club’s first Scudetto in 33 years.
Among the strongest contenders for the role was Galtier, who will be a free agent this summer after his dismissal by Paris Saint-Germain.
However, Footmercato claim that Napoli President Aurelio De Laurentiis asked forward Osimhen for any feedback on the man he had already worked with at Lille and the response was surprisingly poor.
It was claimed that Osimhen thought Galtier not up to the task of leading Napoli and suggested De Laurentiis look elsewhere for a new coach.
Osimhen shot to fame with Galtier at LOSC in 2019-20, which in turn earned the Nigeria international a €75m plus bonuses transfer to Napoli.
The latest hot favourite to become coach of Napoli is current Salernitana boss Paulo Sousa.
