The 24-year-old forward’s displeasure was evident, casting a shadow over the team’s preparations for the upcoming Serie A clash against Udinese.
Despite his frustration, Osimhen is included in Napoli’s squad for the game against Udinese, and it’s expected that he will start the match, even though his recent form has seen him fail to find the net in his last four games for the Serie A champions.
The situation has raised questions about Osimhen’s state of mind and his ability to put aside recent events to deliver a strong performance for Napoli.
As the match approaches, all eyes will be on Osimhen, who has the opportunity to prove his detractors wrong and regain his scoring touch in what promises to be a challenging encounter against Udinese.
