I Regret Selling Osimhen – Liverpool Director Confesses

By Adadainfo

Liverpool’s incoming new sporting director Jorg Schmadtke has admitted he regrets selling Napoli striker Victor Osimhen during his developing stage at Wolfsburg.

Both Osimhen and Schmadtke were together with Bundesliga giants Wolfsburg.

Osimhen was not quite the ruthless striker that he has developed into currently and after going 16 games without a goal with the German side where he had just begun his professional career, he was allowed to join Belgian club Charleroi on a season-long loan where he flourished with 20 goals in all competitions during the 2018/19 campaign.

Following his impressive performance with Charleroi, the club activated their £3m option to sign him.

The 24-year-old would be on the move once more just weeks later as Lille swooped with a £19m deal.

Now one of the most highly rated strikers in Europe, the 59-year-old Schmadtke, while speaking with Kicker, he said, “It wasn’t a good move, in hindsight. When I came, he [Osimhen] was limping and running in circles.

“I was told that the strikers we had weren’t good enough. The most important lesson is that you have to be patient with some transfers.”
