The Napoli striker, who has been tormented by the controversy surrounding the mocking of him by the club’s Tik Tok account, has issued a statement calling for unity with supporters.
Napoli’s Tik Tok account’s mockery of Victor Osimhen, a key player in last year’s Scudetto triumph, has not gone down well with the Nigerian player’s entourage.
“What happened today (…) is not acceptable,” said his agent, Roberto Calenda.
The striker also expressed his annoyance the day after the incident and even chose not to celebrate his goal against Udinese last Wednesday.
On Sunday, the day after Napoli’s crushing win over Lecce, Osimhen finally reacted publicly to the controversy by publishing a statement on his social networks.
This is the full statement:
“Coming to the City of Naples in 2020 was a wonderful decision for me. The People of Napoli have shown me so much love and kindness, and I will not allow anyone to come between us”.
“The passion of the People of Naples fuels my fire to always play with my heart and soul, and the love for the badge is unwavering as I wear it with pride”.
“The accusations against People of Naples are untrue. I have a lot of friends that are Napolitans and have become part of my family and everyday life. I appreciate Nigerians and everyone for leading their voices to support and reach out to me”.
“I’m forever grateful. Let’s support unity, respect and understanding. FORZA NAPOLI SEMPRE ”
