Osimhen’s Instagram rant

Osimhen answered back in a long Instagram live, in which he was clearly livid at the accusations fired at home.

The Napoli striker ranted: “I called Finidi George when he was appointed and told him: ‘Let’s do great things together.’

“I call my teammates before the match to encourage them but after two bad games, everyone is blaming me and I wasn’t even part of the team!

“I got injured in the last minute of our last match. I had an ankle injury that was confirmed on an MRI scan.

“I won’t allow disrespect from anybody. I won’t allow that stain from anyone.

“I always play my heart out for Nigeria.

“I know how many injuries I’ve played with for Nigeria and I played my heart out, but after two bad games, everybody is attacking me.”

Osimhen, meanwhile, remains firmly in the picture when it comes to football transfer news.

The 26-year-old has had a €120 million asking price slapped on him that Premier League teams such as Arsenal and Chelsea have so far baulked at, but reports in Italy state that he is “convinced” he will complete a dream move to England this summer.
