Victor Osimhen sent a strong message to his critics on Wednesday night, scoring in his first game since Napoli mocked him on social media.
Osimhen was ridiculed by his own club last week after he missed a penalty in a Champions League match against Liverpool. The club posted a tweet comparing the Nigerian striker to a donkey, which sparked widespread outrage.
Napoli later apologized for the tweet, but the damage had already been done. Osimhen was clearly upset by the incident, and he considered leaving the club.
However, Osimhen put all of that behind him on Wednesday night, scoring in Napoli’s 4-1 victory over Udinese. The Nigerian striker celebrated his goal by covering his mouth, a clear message to his critics.
Osimhen’s goal was a much-needed boost for Napoli, who had been struggling in recent weeks. The victory moved Napoli up to second place in Serie A, just two points behind leaders AC Milan.
Osimhen’s performance was also a good sign for Nigeria, who are preparing for the World Cup in Qatar
What to expect next
It will be interesting to see how Osimhen performs in the coming weeks. He has been in good form this season, and he is now one of the most feared strikers in Serie A.
Osimhen will be looking to continue his good form in the lead-up to the World Cup. He wants to prove to the world that he is one of the best strikers in the world, and he will have the opportunity to do so in Qatar.
