The coach of Lille Christopher Galtier has said he is not bothered by the poor away form of Super Eagles star Victor Osimhen in the French Ligue 1.
Concise News understands that the Nigerian who took the French league by storm this term has not scored any goal away from home for Lille.
Although the player has netted eight times for the side, many have questioned his poor scoring form away from home.
But the Lille manager Galtier has said he is not bothered by Osimhen’s poor away form, noting that the team should take responsibility.
”We lose as a team and win as a team. Osimhen is part of the team. Collectively we will have to do better away from home not just Osimhen. It’s for the entire team,” the gaffer said.
Lille will be at home to Valencia in the Champions League on Wednesday night.
