The video of Victor Osimhen that has led him to take legal action against Napoli
Napoli striker Victor Osimhen missed a penalty shot against Bologna on Sunday and his own team posted a bizarre video to their TikTok account mocking him.
Napoli striker Victor Osimhen is now considering taking legal action against his team after they posted this strange and controversial video to their TikTok account mocking him for missing a penalty. The video, which has since been deleted from their account, showed Osimhen appealing for a penalty with a sped-up, high-pitched voice behind it saying “give me penalty please”, then showing him miss the shot.
Osimhen’s agent, Roberto Calenda tweeted this message:
“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.”
Napoli has yet to acknowledge the video. Osimhen has removed all links to Napoli from his Instagram page.
