Serie A champions, Napoli, has finally spoken about a TikTok video it posted on their official page which has been generating reactions in Italy and across the world.
The clip appears to mock the 24-year-old Nigeria international for missing a penalty during their 0-0 draw with Bologna in Serie A last weekend.
Meanwhile, Napoli, in a statement, on Thursday said “To avoid any potential exploitation of the matter, SSC Napoli would like to explicitly state that the club never intended to offend or make fun of Victor Osimhen, who is an asset to the club.”
The club further stated that its firm decision to reject all offers for the Nigerian striker in the striker showed its appreciation for the striker.
“Over the course of the summer, Napoli rejected all offers to sign the striker – firm proof of the club’s appreciation of him.
“On social media and TikTok particularly, expressive language is used in a light-hearted and playful manner. In this case involving Victor, there was no intention of mockery or derision.”
