Osimhen returns to training after Ostigard brawl

By - - [ Uncategorized ]

Barely 24 hours after he was dismissed from training by coach Luciano Spelletti following a brawl with a teammate, Super Eagles striker Victor Osimhen returned to training with Napoli on Tuesday, beaming with a smile, PUNCH Sports Extra reports.

The Partenopeans are camped at Castel di Sangro, somewhere in the central part of Italy.

Osimhen was angered by a poor tackle from Napoli’s new signing Leo Ostigard, who recently claimed the Nigeria international was the toughest opponent he had faced in his career, leading to persistent complaints and a display of anger by the striker.

Frustrated by his behaviour, Napoli boss Luciano Spalletti sent Osimhen out of the training session to “take a shower.”
However, according to Gazzetta dello Sport, things are fine between the club’s record signing and the manager, quelling rumours that Osimhen may be forced out of the club following his behaviour.
“After the morning training session, Luciano Spalletti took a significant step towards Victor Osimhen, just as the Nigerian – who had not spared himself during the athletic part – was leaning on the goal post. The Napoli coach ran to meet his striker, held out his hand and lifted him so as to seal an agreement that the altercation of the previous day did not scratch,” the publication wrote.

“Spalletti obviously illustrated what the menu of the day would be but above all he asked to ‘be united, to make a group.’ Nothing in particular, but still an important signal sent to the team at a specific moment. Osimhen responded with the usual smile, but also with a few more goals than the previous afternoon and this too – for what it’s worth – is a sign to be taken into consideration.”
The Partenopeans have already played two games in preseason, emphatically beating Anaunia and Perugia.

Napoli play next on Wednesday against Adana Demirspor.

Osimhen would look to outdo compatriot Henry Onyekuru, who just joined the Turkish side this summer.
