AS Roma manager, Jose Mourinho has warned Victor Osimhen about premier league life amidst interest from Manchester United to change his attitude a bit, adding that they will come hard on him in England.

Osimhen was in imperious form on Sunday night for Serie A leaders, Napoli as they beat capital city side AS Roma 2-1 at the Diego Maradona stadium.

Osimhen scored a contender for the goal of the season in the Serie A in the 17th minute when he controlled the ball superbly and rifled home.

The strike was his 14th league goal of the season.

Mourinho in his post-match press conference spoke to AS Roma’s official website on his thoughts about the game.

“Mancini played basically as a right-back and did a good job of frustrating Kvaratshkhelia, just as Ibanez and Smalling did with Osimhen,” Mourinho said to AS Roma’s official webpage.

“If Victor changes, then OK. I’d buy him if I was at a club with a lot of money. However, if he does go to England one day, he needs to change, because in Italy they put up with this sort of behaviour, whereas in the Premier League, they’d come down hard on him.”

He revealed that he also spoken to Osimhen after the match.

“I told him that he scored a wonderful goal and needs to stop diving so much. His goal was fantastic, he did the same thing when we met earlier this season, so he’s a fantastic player. But he mustn’t dive,” he added.
