The penalty lost which got him criticized by fans, also led to a mockery and racism video posted on the Napoli’s official page on TikTok.
The video on the club’s TikTok account also got on the nerves of the 24-year-old striker who reacted and deleted pictures that has to with NAPOLI from his Instagram account.
Osimhen ended his four-game wait for a goal against Udinese but refused to celebrate the goal after he added to Napoli’s lead.
Recall the Nigerian has been the center of attention after videos posted on the official Napoli TikTok mocked him for his penalty miss against Bologna and compared him to a coconut.
Osimhen had the chance to put Napoli ahead against Udinese after they were awarded a penalty, but he passed the ball over to Piotr Zielinski, allowing the Pole to net the opener.
The 24-year-old kindness was rewarded later in the match, when he comfortably dispatched the Partenopei’s second of the night.
In his celebration, Osimhen ran over to the Napoli bench and hugged new signing Jesper Lindstrom, ignoring coach Rudi Garcia.
