- After missing a penalty in Napoli’s 0-0 draw away to Bologna at the weekend, a video mocking Osimhen was posted on Napoli’s TikTok account
Former Super Eagles captain Sunday Oliseh has advised Victor Osimhen to leave Napoli as soon as possible.
Oliseh said this following the current state of affairs between Osimhen and Napoli.
After missing a penalty in Napoli’s 0-0 draw away to Bologna at the weekend, a video mocking Osimhen was posted on Napoli’s TikTok account.
This led to Osimhen’s agent Roberto Calenda stating on his X handle that his client could consider suing his club for the offensive video.
Also, Osimhen was reported to have deleted every Napoli-related post on his social media.
Also in another video Osimhen shared a handshake with Napoli Team Manager but ignored some of his teammates as he walked into the team’s hotel ahead of Wednesday’s game with Udinese
Commenting on the whole saga between Osimhen and Napoli, Oliseh wrote on his X handle:”Forever proud to be Nigerian; One must show personality, work hard & refuse to be intimidated. let Racists and ingrates talk! That’s why they are eternal losers who secretly wish they were created like you! Osimhen needs to leave Napoli as soon as yesterday!!.“
Osimhen was in action for Napoli in the game against Udinese and got one of the goals in a 4-1 home win.
It was his fourth goal in six games in the league for the champions this season.
Subsequently, Victor Osimhen’s agent Roberto Calenda has rescinded his decision to pursue legal action against Napoli following the recent controversy surrounding the mocking TikTok video.
According to Italian publication, Gazzetta dello Sport, Calenda has decided not to file a lawsuit against Napoli following the release of their statement.
The Nigerian striker has two years remaining on his contract.
A renewal seems incredibly unlikely at this stage, making a departure within the next 12 months a realistic possibility.
