Nigerian attacker, Victor Osimhen has landed in trouble as Napoli are considering a fine for him over his action when susbsstituted in the club’s last serie A game against Bologna on Sunday evening.
Osimhen berated manager Rudi Garcia and angrily approached the bench after his substition in the encounter.
Osimhen missed a penalty in the 0-0 draw against Bologna before he was substituted in the closing stages of the encounter.
But as he left the pitch, the former Lille star looked angry with Garcia and held up two fingers to the coach in an apparent suggestion that more than one striker should be on the pitch with the team still needing a goal.
According to Il Mattino, Osimhen and Garcia will meet at Napoli’s training ground later in the week to discuss the incident and the player could be fined for his outburst.
The report added that Napoli captain Giovanni Di Lorenzo had a ‘harsh’ talk with Osimhen inside the dressing room after the match.
When asked about Osimhen’s furious reaction, Garcia said at his post-match interview: “As for when he went off, we talked about that, what I say to my players remains in the locker room.
“We have a lot of quality in the squad and on the bench, so Simeone, Politano and Elmas came on, I still have Jesper available too,” he said.
Osimhen will now hope to lead Napoli to victory when they face Udinese in their next game on Wednesday.
