Victor Osimhen, through his agent Roberto Calenda, has been at odds with Napoli for several days, threatening to take the club to court following a mocking video of the Nigerian that circulated on social networks. But the latest news is that the player has decided to drop the lawsuit following the club’s press release.
“Calcio Napoli, in order to avoid any exploitation of the subject, clarifies that it’s never been their intention to offend or mock Victor Osimhen, the club’s technical asset. As proof, during the summer training camp, the Club firmly rejected all offers received for the transfer of the striker abroad. It is common knowledge that on social networks, particularly on TikTok, expressive language has always been created with lightness and creativity, without having had, in the case involving Osimhen, any intention of ridicule or derision. However, if Victor had perceived any offense towards him, it was extraneous to any will of the company,” said Napoli. Following this, today’s edition of Gazzetta Dello Sport revealed that Roberto Calenda, the Neapolitan star’s agent, has decided not to pursue the club any further over the incident. This situation has a happy ending. The tug-of-war between the two parties is now over.
