Osimhen loses penalty as Bolgna draw Napoli


Victor Osimhen had a nightmare in Napoli’s 0-0 draw with Bologna on Sunday, missing a penalty and shouting angrily at coach Rudi Garcia after being substituted.

The Nigerian international has not seemed quite the same as in his Scudetto-winning season and does not appear to have a good rapport with new coach Garcia.

Osimhen was unlucky in the first half when his strike hit the post, but he then wasted their best chance to win when firing a penalty off target in the 73rd minute.

The situation got worse when Napoli fans in the stadium loudly jeered Garcia for his decisions, first to take off Kvicha Kvaratskhelia, then substituting Osimhen with Giovanni Simeone in the 86th minute.

This last pick infuriated Osimhen, who was visibly angry as he walked off and was heard shouting at Garcia in French that he wanted ‘two strikers’ to work together in order to get the victory.

The draw leaves Napoli seven points adrift of leaders Inter after just five rounds of the campaign.
