Finally, Victor Osimhen has addressed the controversy surrounding his TikTok videos and his relationship with Napoli.
Roberto Calenda, Osimhen’s agent, was outraged last week when Napoli aired two TikTok videos making fun of the Nigerian striker for missing a penalty in a league match against Bologna.
The striker has scored quietly during the past week and has removed any photos of himself wearing a Napoli jersey from his social media platforms.
Napoli published a statement clarifying that it was not deliberate.
The previously silent Osimhen has finally spoken out.
In 2020, I made a great choice when I moved to Naples. In a statement made on Sunday, the Nigeria stated, “The People of Naples have shown me so much love and kindness, and I will not allow anyone to come between us.”
“The love of the badge is unwavering as I proudly wear it, and the passion of the People of Naples ignites my fire to always play with my heart and soul.
False claims have been made about the people of Naples. Many Napolitans have become close friends and even family members of mine.
I’m grateful to the people of Nigeria and everywhere else who have spoken out in my favor and reached out to me. I will always appreciate your help.
Let us keep sharing mutual regard and compassion with one another.
That’s right, “FORZA NAPOLI SEMPRE.”
