Victor Osimhen Makes Shock Move On Napoli For Controversial Tiktok Video
Nigerian striker, Victor Osimhen, has made a shock move on Napoli following a controversial tiktok video that has got football fans talking, MySportDab reports.

Now, in a new development to the story, Victor Osimhen is considering a legal action against Napoli for the offensive.
A statement by his agent, Roberto Calenda, confirming the plan to take up legal action against Napoli reads:
‘What happened today on Napoli’s official profile on the TikTok platform is not acceptable.
‘A video mocking Victor was first made public and then, but now belatedly, deleted.
‘A serious fact that causes very serious damage to the player and adds to the treatment that the boy is suffering in the last period between media trials and fake news.
‘We reserve the right to take legal action and any useful initiative to protect Victor.’
Following the heavy backlash, Napoli have since deleted the video but the club is yet to make a statement on the incident.
Victor Osimhen helped Napoli to their first Serie A title in three decades last season, scoring 26 goals to clinch the Golden Boot award.
Napoli have began the season on a rocky start this season, drawing two matches and losing on and are 7 points off the Serie A top.
