Nigerian football legend Sunday Oliseh has urged his compatriot Victor Osimhen to leave the Italian champions SSC Napoli as soon as possible.
This comes after the club’s official TikTok handle posted videos mocking the 24-year-old striker who had missed a penalty in the team’s 0-0 draw against Bologna FC on September 24.
Unsurprisingly, Osimhen and his agent, Roberto Calenda are both unhappy with the incident and the latter has vowed to institute legal action against Napoli.
Oliseh, who is considered one of Africa’s greatest midfielders of all time, believes that it is time for Osimhen to leave the Naples-based club.
“Forever proud to be Nigerian; One must show personality, work hard & refuse to be intimidated. let Racists and ingrates talk!” Oliseh wrote on his official X page.
“That’s why they are eternal losers who secretly wish they were created like you! Osimhen needs to leave Napoli as soon as yesterday!!”
Osimhen’s current deal with Napoli will expire in 2025 and he has been linked with Manchester United, PSG, and Saudi Arabian clubs.
