Speaking to the Italian newspaper, It Mattino, via Naporpid, Careca said: "Osimhen has unique characteristics. A bit like Haaland, the City ace, who looks heavy but instead has extraordinary agility. Osimhen is doing great things after overcoming many physical problems and hasn't yet shown his best: the margins for improvement are considerable.”

"Meanwhile, his regularity is striking: he always scores. He has incredible willpower and then it's as if the ball was looking for him and not vice versa. He positions himself very well, he is always in the heart of the action," he added.
