The Nigerian led the Partenopei to their first league title in 33 years last season with his goals.
However, the striker has not been able to score goals this season compared to his scoring level last season.
His poor form in front of goal was also evident in the draw against Bologna last weekend when the Nigeria international missed a penalty that could have earned his team maximum points.
In a post that has now been deleted, the Partenopei ‘memed’ Osimhen’s penalty miss in an attempt to poke fun at the situation.
The video was met with significant outrage by fans on social media who were befuddled by the decision of a club to use an official account to berate their own player.
The blowback was to the extent that it compelled the club to take the content down from their platform.
The player seems to have been aggrieved by the post, as his agent has now put out an official statement denouncing it.
In an official statement shared by Fabrizio Romano, the striker’s agent, Roberto Calenda, said the following:
Osimhen, represented by Calenda, is still in contract negotiation talks with the Partenopei. The club are said to be offering a well-deserved wage increase but want a sizable release clause included in his new deal, amid interest from European giants.
This incident could complicate those discussions, and with only a little below two seasons left on his contract, aged 24, Osimhen holds all the cards.
