Serie A Champions Napoli have condemned the sale and manufacturing of a Victor Osimhen doll, detaching themselves from the item.
Images of an Osimhen doll went viral on social media recently and the doll, which has the trademark hair and mask of the Nigerian striker, has been made out of the template of one of the most prominent dolls in Italy. It is, in fact, a new design of the Cicciobello Bomber, which is made by Giochi Preziosi.
It was reported in the media that the doll has been authorised by Napoli and Aurelio de Laurentiis and that it will be sold soon later this month.
But Napoli have released a statement, confirming that the Partenopei never authorised the sale and they condemned the reports which state the otherwise. They have stated the product is ‘unofficial’ and the club never authorised it from their end. The club have now taken actions to protect its interests.
