It is not the great start to the new year the former Lille star may have been hoping for as the Italian club has reacted heavily to his indiscretion
Nigerian striker Victor Osimhen has been handed a fine of two weeks’ wages for recklessness and not respecting the club’s COVID-19 regulations.
A video surfaced online on new year’s day of the Super Eagles’ forward celebrating his birthday in Nigeria with a large crowd of people showing little or no COVID protocols, including social distancing and the wearing of nose masks.
Osimhen has since returned to Italy and tested positive for the dreaded coronavirus disease, even though the 22-year-old is asymptomatic.
This development has reportedly angered Napoli and club boss Gennaro Gattuso who have been shorn of the services of the former Golden Eaglets star for the past three months.
And the Serie A giants have come down hard on Osimhen’s indiscipline by fining him his two weeks wages, as per Football Italia.
