According to Gazzeta dello Sport, Osimhen apologized to his coach and team-mates after his outburst following his substitution. This was during the match between Napoli and Bologna, which ended 0-0. Osimhen, it has to be said, was unsuccessful, hitting the upright and missing a penalty. It was also the Nigerian's 4th game without scoring a goal.
The player, under particular scrutiny, was replaced by his coach a few minutes from the end of the match (86th).Osimhen, no doubt frustrated, was seen explaining to Garcia that it was necessary to play with two center-forwards, rather than having him replaced by Simeone.
The source announced that Napoli had wiped the slate clean regarding the possible sanction he was facing. Reacting to the incident, Napoli captain Giovanni Di Lorenzo downplayed the act: "We manage certain episodes in the dressing room. They become more obvious when things go wrong". We need to be united and focused on the goal.We'll talk to the group and the coach to resolve this problem".Finally, he believes that now is not the time for alarm."We don't like to be behind in the league, even if it's early days".Napoli currently lie in 7th place with 8 points, 7 behind leaders Inter Milan.
