Victor Osimhen Holds Up A Shirt Saying “End Police Brutality In Nigeria” After Scoring His First Goal For Napoli

Published

Super Eagles striker, Victor Osimhen celebrated his first goal for Napoli by holding up a white shirt with the inscription “#End Police Brutality In Nigeria” during his team 4 – 1 win against Atlanta on Saturday, October 17.

Recall the 21-year-old became Nigeria’s most expensive player after completing a €50m move to Napoli from Lille in July 2020.

Today, he scored his first goal for the club and celebrated with a message, calling for an end to police brutality in Nigeria amid the ongoing #EndSARS protests.

Napoli paid French club Lille a club record fee of up to 80 million euros ($94.6 million) to bring Nigeria forward to southern Italy on a five-year deal.

The total fee is almost double Napoli’s previous club record of around 40 million euros paid for Gonzalo Higuain in 2013 and Hirving Lozano last year.

Osimhen scored 18 times last season and was one of the revelations of France’s curtailed campaign with 13 Ligue 1 goals as Lille finished fourth.

Napoli finished seventh in Serie A and qualified for the Europa League after winning the Italian Cup, their first trophy in six years.

Gennaro Gattuso’s Napoli are hoping to get back on track after their aborted trip to Juventus before the international break.

They did not turn up for the game in Turin after two positive coronavirus cases.

As a result, they were handed a 3-0 defeat and docked a point, a setback for a side who won their first two game this season.
