No Qualms Depending On Osimhen For Lille Goals

Lille manager Christophe Galtier is not worried about his side’s overdependence on Nigeria forward Victor Osimhen for goals this season, reports.

Osimhen, who arrived Lille from Belgian side, Sporting Charleroi this summer has shouldered goal scoring
responsibilities for Les Dogues following the departure of Nicolas Pepe and Rafeal Leao.

Lille have scored 19 goals in the French Ligue 1 this season with Osimhen contributing eight from 14 appearances.

The 20-year-old has also scored two of the three goals scored by the club in the UEFA Champions League.

”All the team’s are dependent on their strikers. Against Dijon, we were constantly looking for short passes around the box, we have to shoot more,” Galtier told a news conference ahead of Lille’s Ligue 1 clash with Olympic Lyon on Tuesday.
