Despite the raging controversy over a Social media post on its Social media account, Napoli President Aurelio De Laurentiis says Nigerian striker, Victor Osimhen has no Issue with the club.
Both player and club had in separate statements played down the impact of a TikTok video, shared on the Napoli handle, mocking the Super Eagle for missing a penalty in the 0-0 draw at Bologna.
That incident led to the sack of Napoli’s social media manager, while the Nigerian has continued playing for the Partonopei and was in action when for the UEFA Champions League 2-3 loss to Real Madrid.
Despite rumours linking Osimhen with a move away from Naples, in a recent interview with ElChringuito, Napoli president de Laurentiis was quick to stress that there are no problems with Osimhen.
“Osimhen was not even at issue. He’s a top player.
” New deal? Yes, there’s no problem. There are never problems here. All players are happy at Napoli,
It remains to be seen just how long Osimhen takes to sign the new contract or if he even signs it at all.
There are rumours that a move to the Premier League could be on the cards, perhaps even a money-spinning adventure in the Saudi Pro League. Either way, the next 6 months will paint a clearer picture.
