The São Paulo striker Osvaldo has revealed that he is extremely interested in creating goals in the same way as he is interested in scoring them. The 25-year-old striker has been one of the bright stars for São Paulo this season. More than his goal scoring ability, his assisting ability has come to the fore in recent months. He has managed six assists in his last eight matches for the club. Even though he has managed to score only three goals during this period, his importance to the team has been demonstrated by the number of goals contributed in terms of assists.
Osvaldo has said that it is extremely important that the team has creators of goals within following the departure of Lucas Mora. The Brazilian midfielder was recently sold to the French club Paris St Germain for a reported transfer fee of £ 40 million. Osvaldo has revealed that he will not run away from the task of creating goals for the team, and he has thanked the coach Ney Franco for his help on the same. The 25-year-old has also said that he is hoping that his great form will help him find space within the Brazilian national team, who are currently managed by Luiz Felipe Scolari.
“For me, giving a pass to a goal is equally as important as the goal. I’m happy when I do both. I know the fans expect a lot from me, especially after the departure of Lucas. I do not run away from this responsibility, and thanks to God and the support of my teammates and I have managed to help Ney Franco [São Paulo coach]. I think I have achieved this recognition because of all that I have regularly presented. I have made good football since last year, won a major trophy for the club and all that helped too,” said Osvaldo.
