There is no sign of the ripple effect of the video mocking Napoli’s team’s ace striker Victor Osimhen showing any signs of subsiding.
Even Osimhen’s home country, Nigeria, is very angry about this issue. The British media ‘Daily Mail’ reported the reaction of Nigeria’s Minister of Sports, John Ewan Eno, on the 30th (Korean time).
Minister Haeno said, “The Osimhen incident that occurred in Naples made me sad. We are contacting Osimhen directly to try to understand the issue and clarify the facts. “We are in contact with the Nigerian Embassy in Italy,” he said, emphasizing that he is actively involved.
Osimhen missed a penalty kick in the Italian Serie A 5th round match against Bologna. Afterwards, Napoli coach Rudi Garcia replaced Osimhen in the 41st minute of the second half and brought in Giovanni Simeoni. Osimhen came out of the stadium and expressed his dissatisfaction with the coach, but it seemed to be resolved as he immediately apologized.토토사이트
The club had an accident and caused a big problem. Napoli posted a video of Osimhen missing a penalty kick after the game. Napoli mocked Osimhen’s miss by dubbing the video containing the miss with the phrase ‘Gimme penalty please, thank you’ in a comical voice. In addition, the controversy grew as he even compared Osimhen’s appearance to a coconut and made a racist comment.
Osimhen was understandably angry. Osimhen’s agent Calenda said: “What happened today on Napoli’s official platform is unacceptable. “A video mocking Osimhen was released and later deleted,” he said. “The player is suffering very serious damage. “This is a serious fact that Osimhen is experiencing between media trials and fake news,” he said angrily.
As the controversy grew, Napoli posted an official statement regarding the incident on its official website, but could not find any words of apology to Osimhen. He said, “I had no intention of causing offense,” and only escalated the matter without being able to resolve it.
Osimhen, who rejected numerous love calls in this summer transfer market, is turning his attention to a transfer. He has recently been linked with Real Madrid.
