Victor Osimhen has finally reacted to the TikTok videos and controversy between him and Napoli.
Osimhen’s agent, Roberto Calenda, expressed anger after two TikTok videos mocking the Nigerian striker for missing a penalty in a league clash against Bologna were posted by Napoli last week.
The striker also took down all the images of himself in a Napoli jersey from his social media pages and celebrated scoring goals in muted terms over the last week.
Napoli later issued a statement stating that it was not intentional.
Osimhen has now broken his silence on the saga.
“Coming to the City of Naples in 2020 was a wonderful decision for me. The People of Naples have shown me so much love and kindness, and I will not allow anyone to come between us,” the Nigeria striker said in a statement released on Sunday.
“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 accusation against the 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 lending their voices to support and reach out to me. Thanks so much, I’m forever grateful.
“Let’s continue to spread unity, respect and understanding.
“FORZA NAPOLI SEMPRE.”
