Napoli manager, Walter Mazzarri has conceded that Victor Osimhen needs more time to regain his best form.
Osimhen has struggled to hit top form since his return from a hamstring injury.
The 24-year-old fired blanks in the games against Bologna, Real Madrid and Inter Milan.
The Serie A champions will be up against Juventus at the Allianz Arena, Turin on Friday.
Ahead of the highly anticipated clash, Mazzarri hinted that Osimhen is not at his best yet.
“Osimhen obviously needs time to find his best form, also in terms of physical conformation,” the gaffer was quoted by the club’s official website.
“But it’s clear that even if he wasn’t at one hundred percent, he can still give me great guarantees for the strength he knows how to express, even for portions of matches like he has done so far after returning.”
The 24-year-old has scored six goals in 10 league appearances for the Partenopei this season.
