Napoli’s striker, Victor Osihmen, who also represents the Nigerian national team, recently came under heavy criticism from Napoli’s fans. This backlash stemmed from his failure to convert a penalty during their last match against Bologna at the Stadio Renato Dall’Ara stadium, a game that ultimately ended in a draw.
The penalty incident occurred in the 72nd minute when Italian referee Giovanni Ayroldi awarded Napoli a penalty due to a handball by Riccardo Calafiori. Unfortunately, Osihmen, the Nigerian striker, failed to capitalize on the opportunity.
Roberto Calenda, Osihmen’s agent expressed concern, asserting that Napoli’s official TikTok account mocking Osihmen has inflicted significant harm on the Nigerian striker, potentially warranting legal action against the club.
According to Roberto Calenda, he said, “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”.
