The Super Eagles star has severed ties with the agent that helped him move to the Italian top-flight from the French Ligue 1 last year
Super Eagles striker Victor Osimhen is no longer working with football agent William D’Avila. According to the player’s brother-in-law, per Claudio Russo for Calcio Napoli, D’Avila does not represent Osimhen anymore and no longer has the authorisation to speak on the player’s behalf.
In the interview, Osimhen’s brother-in-law claimed they decided to sever ties with the French agent because some agreements were not respected.
“We ended the relationship with the ex-agent, as some agreements were not respected. The mandate has been revoked, and William D’Avila no longer has any authorisation to speak about Victor at this time, he told Calcio Napoli 24.”
It’s a surprising one, given Osimhen had to let go of his former agent for D’Avila last summer. The French agent brokered the deal that took Osimhen from Lille to Napoli for a club and African record of 81.3m euros.
Osimhen is not the only Nigerian player that has an association with D’Avila. The French man also represents Samuel Kalu, Henry Onyekuru, Oghenekaro Etebo, Samson Tijani, Saviour Godwin, Anderson Esiti and Moses Simon.
The owner of DW Sports management also represents some other African players like Mohamed Eleny, Sekou Keita and Trézéguet of Aston Villa.
