Lille coach Gatlier defends Osimhen despite poor away record

Since joining Lille from Belgian club, Sporting Charleroi in the summer, Victor Osimhen has not scored an away goal.

Despite his inability to score in five consecutive away fixtures in the Lihue 1, Lille manager Christophe Gatlier has defended the Nigerian international, saying he is not to be blamed.

Osimhen has scored seven goals in 10 league games for Lille.

All of the 20-year-old's goals so far were scored at home as he also failed to find the back of the net in Saturday’s 2-1 away defeat to Toulouse.

“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,” Gatlier told reporters.

Lille will host Spanish club Valencia in a Champions League matchday three encounter on Wednesday.
