Napoli striker Victor Osimhen has been named Serie A’s Player of the Month for September following his blistering start to the 2021-22 season. The 22-year-old beat Inter Milan midfielder Nicolo Barella, AC Milan’s Brahim Diaz and Fiorentina’s Giacomo Bonaventura to the award organized by the Italian Footballers’ Association. Osimhen recovered from his disappointing performance against Venezia in Napoli’s opening game of the season when he received a red card in the first half.
The Nigerian international player scored seven goals in six matches across all competitions for Luciano Spalletti’s side in September, which includes four Serie A goals.
After he failed to hit the target in Napoli’s 2-1 victory over Juventus on September 11, the former Lille striker scored at least a goal in each of the three league matches he played later. With four goals in six matches, Osimhen’s brillance in front of goal powered Napoli to the top of the Serie A table and they are yet to drop a point with 21 points from seven games.
