The 20-year-old was suspended by the disciplinary commission of the LFP at the conclusion of its meeting on Wednesday, with the former Sporting Charleroi charged with the offence of having accumulated 3 yellow cards in less than 10 games and will miss Lille’s trip to the French capital.
Fans have however received the news with hurt and shock as Victor Osimhen is Lille’s top scorer with 7 league goals with France international Loic Remy coming a distance second with 3 goals in 8 appearances followed by Brazil’s Luis Araujo who has just 2 goals.
Below are some of the fans reactions on social media site, Twitter:
If he doesn't play that game he's definitely not supposed to play another game. That's one game we were all expecting to see him play😡😠
