The former Chelsea manager compared Osimhen to Didier Drogba, an Ivorian icon, but stressed that the Nigerian player must improve.
The former Manchester United manager said in a post-game news conference that if asked to compare him to Didier Drogba, he would answer that the two are on the same level but that Drogba would never dive.
Victor will be OK if he can alter that in his game. I’d purchase him if I was at a club and had plenty of cash.
You scored a beautiful goal, but you didn’t need to dive all the time, Mourinho reportedly told the Nigerian. I did say it to him. That is my opinion.
“He made an incredible goal. It was such a spectacular goal that I almost applauded from my bench.
“He did the same in Rome, when he scored an incredible goal. He is a superb player in my opinion. However, I’ll reiterate that he is not required to dive.
