Nigeria international, Victor Osimhen, on Sunday issued a statement on his football career in Napoli and the people of Naple city.
The statement is coming days after the controversies sparked by official TikTok of the team, which had posted a video referring to Osimhen as a coconut head and another one trolling the Nigerian for missing penalty against Bologna.
Osimhen, in the statement, said his continious stay in Naple has been eventful, describing residents of the city as great people that have always shown him support.
His words : “Coming to the City of Naples in 2020 was a wonderful decision for me. The People of Napoli have shown me so much love and kindness, and I will not allow anyone to come between us”.
“The passion of the People of Naples fuels my fire to always play with my heart and soul, and the love for the badge is unwavering as I wear it with pride”.
“The accusations against People of Naples are untrue. I have a lot of friends that are Napolitans and have become part of my family and everyday life. I appreciate Nigerians and everyone for leading their voices to support and reach out to me”.
“I’m forever grateful. Let’s support unity, respect and understanding”.
“FORZA NAPOLI SEMPRE.”
