Osimhen Deletes Napoli-related Posts from His Instagram Page
Nigerian striker, Victor Osimhen, has deleted Napoli-related posts on his Instagram page.
This is coming after a contentious ‘mockery’ video was posted by Napoli’s verified TikTok handle.
As observed by PUNCH Online on Wednesday morning, Osimhen’s Instagram page was left with one post in which he wore a Napoli jersey, while other posts had been deleted.
After criticisms and reactions from Nigerians and social media users, the video, posted on Tuesday on Napoli’s TikTok page, was pulled down.
Osimhen, who was the club’s top scorer last season as the Parthenopeans won the Scudetto after three decades, missed the penalty that denied Napoli a chance to win all three points against Bologna on Sunday.
Meanwhile, Osimhen could take legal action against Napoli, according to the player’s agent, Roberto Calenda.
Calenda in a statement released on Tuesday described the video as unacceptable.
The statement read: “What happened today on Napoli’s official profile on the TikTok platform is not acceptable. A video mocking Victor was first made public and then, but now belatedly, deleted.
“A serious fact that causes very serious damage to the player and adds to the treatment that the boy is suffering in the last period between media trials and fake news
“We reserve the right to take legal action and any useful initiative to protect Victor.”
