Napoli top scorer Victor Osimhen is at the centre of a bizarre situation because of a now-deleted TikTok video published by the Italian club.
Nigeria striker Osimhen was already the subject of transfer rumours, which are now only going to intensify in light of what took place on social media and appeared to be mockery from the reigning Serie A champions.
Osimhen's agent has even suggested that his client could take legal action against the Champions League side over the post.
Here's what we know about the saga, what Osimhen's representative and Napoli have said and how it could affect his future on the pitch.
Why does Victor Osimhen wear a mask on his face?
Napoli and Osimhen had a match to forget at Bologna on Sunday, continuing an indifferent start to the season with a goalless draw.
When he was substituted, the sought-after Serie A leading marksman in 2022/23 appeared to question manager Rudi Garcia and suggest he should have been used as one of two forwards.
Osimhen, who has scored three times in six appearances this season, had earlier missed a penalty, and Napoli replayed his blunder with a sped-up voice saying "give me penalty, please" over footage of the 24-year-old asking for the ball.
Napoli, who currently have a photo of Osimhen holding a ball on the front of their official website, subsequently deleted the post amid bafflement from fans.Read on sportingnews.com
