Serie A: Osimhen threatens to sue Napoli over TikTok video
Super Eagles striker Victor Osimhen has threatened to sue Napoli over a TikTok video that was posted on Tuesday.
The clip appears to mock Osimhen for missing a penalty during their 0-0 draw with Bologna in Serie A last weekend.
That proved to be the game’s defining moment and was a rare miss from the Nigerian, who has already scored three goals in his first five matches this season.
The video was eventually pulled down by Napoli following a serious backlash on social media.
Osimhen’s agent, Roberto Calenda, has hinted that Osimhen is considering legal action against his club.
“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, 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,” Calenda said.
