Ongoing Tensions: Osimhen Reacts Strongly to Napoli Fans in Serie A Dispute

Nigerian striker Victor Osimhen, nominated for FIFA Best Player and Ballon d’Or awards, faces strained relations with Napoli due to contract talks and on-field frustrations. Recent incidents include videos mocking him and a confrontation with fans over autographs, possibly signaling a departure from Napoli. Osimhen is currently sidelined with an injury sustained during international play.

Contract Talks and Friction: Osimhen's Napoli Journey

Victor Osimhen, the prolific Super Eagles striker, has earned nominations for both the FIFA Best Player Award and France Football’s Ballon d’Or after an exceptional season with Napoli.

Despite his stellar performance on the field, Osimhen's relationship with both the club and its fans seems to be fraying. Talks about his contract extension have hit a snag, and with coaching changes leading to a dip in form, the former Lille player is growing increasingly frustrated.


Napoli recently posted a video on TikTok, poking fun at Osimhen for a penalty appeal gone awry. Another video even compared his appearance to a coconut.

In a more recent incident, Osimhen visibly snubbed a handshake from club captain, Giovanni Di Lorenzo, after a sideline dispute with Rudi Garcia upon being substituted.

A video circulating online shows Osimhen agitated as fans requested autographs. It appeared that they accidentally scratched Osimhen’s car, leaving him visibly displeased. Despite attempts to calm the situation, Osimhen vented his frustration on the car window.

Osimhen's contract with Napoli expires in 2025. With growing discord between the player and the club, it's becoming increasingly unlikely that he'll extend his tenure beyond his current agreement.

Due to an injury sustained during the international break in Nigeria’s 2-2 draw against Saudi Arabia, Osimhen remains unavailable for club play.
