Napoli’s Victor Osimhen Considers Legal Action Against Club Over Mocking TikTok Video.
Napoli’s star striker, Victor Osimhen, is contemplating legal action against his own club after Napoli’s official TikTok account posted a controversial video that appeared to mock him.
This incident occurred shortly after Osimhen played a pivotal role in securing Napoli’s first league title in 30 years, contributing an impressive 31 goals across all competitions.
Osimhen’s agent, Roberto Calenda, expressed his strong disapproval of the video, labeling it unacceptable and potentially damaging to the player’s reputation.
Calenda further stated that they are prepared to take legal action and any necessary measures to protect Victor.
The contentious TikTok video featured a sped-up voiceover mocking Osimhen’s recent penalty miss during a match against Bologna.
The incident has raised eyebrows, especially in light of reported tensions between Osimhen and Napoli manager Rudi Garcia, as the striker was seen expressing his frustration when substituted during a recent goalless draw.
This controversy comes amidst speculation about Osimhen’s future, as he did not extend his contract with Napoli despite garnering interest from prominent clubs like Manchester United.
