The Edo-born Striker also scored a similar goal when both teams last met at the Stadio Olimpico.

Speaking at a press conference after the game on Sunday night, Mourinho was asked about the comparison between Osimhen and Drogba.

“He is of the same level as Drogba, but Didier didn’t dive,” replied Mourinho.

“If Victor changes, then okay. 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 (diving), whereas in the Premier League, they’d come down hard on him.”

Osimhen is currently the leading scorer in Serie A with 14 goals from 16 matches.

His compatriot, Ademola Lookman is second with 13 goals.
