Manager Rudi Garcia Addresses Osimhen’s Commitment to Napoli Amidst Tensions

By Score More Napoli manager Rudi Garcia has affirmed that Victor Osimhen remains committed to the club despite recent tensions and a peculiar social media incident. The Serie A club had posted a TikTok video that appeared to mock Osimhen by featuring a sped-up voiceover of his penalty miss from a recent match against Bologna. This video followed a perceived on-field disagreement between Osimhen and Garcia during the same game, where the Nigerian striker was seen berating the manager as he was substituted with just four minutes remaining in a goalless draw. However, Osimhen returned to action and the scoresheet in Napoli's subsequent match, a resounding 4-1 victory over Udinese. In the post-match discussion, the focus naturally shifted towards Osimhen's future, with links to clubs li...

By Scoring More Napoli, the current Italian champion, kicked off the season with a 3-1 victory at home against the newly promoted Frosinone on Saturday (19th), in a match from the first round of Serie A. At the start of their campaign to defend the title, Napoli was led by their new coach Rudi Garcia, who returned to the Italian league over seven years after leaving Roma (2013-16).

The Moroccan Abdou Harroui converted the penalty. Matteo Politano leveled the score by capitalizing on a poorly cleared shot by the Frosinone defense (24'). Then it was the turn of the Nigerian star Victor Osimh...
