Lille coach Christophe Galtier has showered praise on Victor Osimhen after he netted his sixth goal in Ligue 1 for the club to climb to third place on the league table.
Osimhen scored a goal in the 43rd minute to give Lille a 1-0 lead and then assisted Loic Remy for the second goal in the 64th minute as they beat Strasbourg 2-0
Galtier said Osimhen is an important player for the club who is doing a good job as a striker.
“Victor Osimhen scored again? It’s his job ( smile ). In all the teams that are at the top, there is always a big striker. We must not forget all the collective work done around him. But obviously he is an important element,” the Lille coach saluted.
“… and I’m very happy that we can win in this way,that our two forwards scored in this 4-4-2. This victory should allow us to trigger a real dynamic by showing all players that they can exist in this quality group.”
The 20-year-old striker remains top of the goals chart in France with six goals and two assists in seven league games for Lille.
