It's always nice to be able to celebrate a player's birthday, and Manolo Gabbiadini is no exception. Thursday is the gangly Italian striker's 24th birthday, and it's time to send him some well wishes.

Gabbiadini has scored 16 goals in 43 matches since joining Napoli in January, and has been a regular in the Italy national team since then as well. He's a strong up-and-comer, and his purchase was one of the wisest Napoli have made in years.

Unfortunately, he'll be spending his birthday watching Napoli play from home, as Gabbiadini is currently injured and stayed in Naples. Hopefully Napoli will give him a win as a present.
