Victor Osimhen, a Nigerian international, has explained why he was upset with Napoli manager Rudi Garcia after their 0-0 draw with Bologna, saying it was because he ‘wanted to win’.
After appearing to disagree with Garcia’s decision to substitute him, the Super Eagles striker explained his actions and apologized to his manager and teammates.
Osimhen was visibly agitated and argued with Garcia after being substituted for Giovanni Simeone with 4 minutes remaining in the game.
After hitting the woodwork once and missing a penalty, Osimhen cut a disgruntled figure.
Fabrizio Romano, an Italian football expert, has now revealed that the Nigerian forward has apologised for his reaction.
“Victor Osimhen has apologised today to manager Garcia and Napoli teammates after showing disappointment when subbed off yesterday.
“Osimhen said in the dressing room speech that he was overreacting as he always wants to win.”
