A video has emerged of Napoli center forward Victor Osimhen ignoring his Napoli teammates amid a sudden high-profile fallout with the club.
As reported by Soccer Times, the Nigerian international has been included in the squad for tonight’s Serie A clash at home to Udinese by under-fire head coach Rudi Garcia.

In a video posted on Social Media by Italian reporter Gennaro Del Vecchio, Osimhen clearly ignores teammates Diogo Demme and Piotr Zielinski with the striker walking past Demme’s offer of an outstretched hand to greet him.

Osimhen was arriving at Napoli’s team hotel ahead of the match this evening after a statement was made on his behalf by his agent confirming he was considering taking legal action against the club.
Speculation will inevitably arise over Osimhen’s long-term future at Napoli with one of the best strikers in world football publically displaying his unhappiness.
Osimhen comfortably finished as Serie A’s top goalscorer last season with 26 goals as the Neapolitans went on to win their first league title since 1990.
