“Genoa and Parma are certainly not at the level of Juve, the Bianconeri have as much quality as Napoli, it will be an open match, both teams can score goals,” Krol said on Radio Kiss Kiss.


“Osimhen hasn’t scored yet, He has other qualities too. He has a lot of movement, it’s always difficult for a striker to fit in right away, and we saw that with Lozano.”


Napoli currently top the summit with six points from two matches.

The Nigerian striker joined Napoli from French side Losc Lille on a record signing worth €50 Million in 2020.
