Napoli owner Aurelio de Laurentiis has revealed that there are no problems regarding the potential contract renewal of Victor Osimhen.
The Nigerian had started for the club against Real Madrid yesterday, as Napoli put in a good performance during a 3-2 loss at home. Osimhen won a penalty, having scored one goal each in the last two games and having responded to the controversial TikTok video saga in fine fashion.
There has been talk about Osimhen’s future, especially after the recent controversy and De Laurentiis spoke to the press in the mixed zone and he was asked about the Nigerian’s contract renewal.
He said: “There is no problem, there is never a problem: everyone in Napoli is always happy, the problem is when they leave they can no longer find the main road.”
He also spoke about the 24-year-old’s performances and stated: “Always strong, he’s a player who makes a team on his own. That’s not up for discussion.”
Osimhen’s return to form is vital for Napoli, who had initially struggled but have found form under Rudi Garcia.
