Sunday Oliseh, a former Nigeria midfielder, has pushed Victor Osimhen to leave Napoli.
This comes after the Serie A team mocked the Super Eagles striker after he missed a penalty in a video broadcast on the club’s TikTok account.
On Sunday, Osimhen missed a penalty in their goalless draw with Bologna.
Following his mistake, the club released a video on TikTok mocking the Nigerian striker. Although the message was later removed, the harm had already been done.
Osimhen erased all Napoli-related Instagram posts, and there was a video showing him snubbing his teammates on his way to the club’s facilities.
Despite this, he played and scored for the team in their 4-1 win over Udinese on Wednesday.
A lot of fans have urged Osimhen to leave the club following the incident, and former Nigeria coach Oliseh shares a similar opinion. He has advised Osimhen to leave the club immediately.
“Forever proud to be Nigerian; One must show personality, work hard & refuse to be intimidated,” Oliseh wrote on Twitter.
“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!!.”
Meanwhile, Napoli have already released a statement apologising to Osimhen. They have been negotiating terms for a contract extension in recent weeks. But with the events of the last few days, it may take a while before the big Nigerian striker agrees.
