Osimhen stars in Napoli's win over Udinese despite TikTok controversy

After a defeat and two draws, reigning Serie A champions Napoli returned to winning ways with Victor Osimhen playing a starring role in Wednesday’s 4-1 win over Udinese.

The Nigerian striker scored his fourth goal of the season after 39 minutes with Khvicha Kvaratskhelia ending a long goal drought by finding the net in the second half.

Piotr Zielinski and Giovanni Simeone scored Napoli’s other goals.

Osimhen, top scorer in Serie A last season, had cut a controversial figure at the weekend when he showed his displeasure at being taken off by coach Rudy Garcia in the 0-0 draw with Bologna.

On Tuesday, his agent threatened Napoli with legal action for having published a video on the club’s TikTok account, since deleted, mocking the striker for missing a penalty in that game.

Napoli are now fifth in the table with 11 points, four points behind the two Milan clubs.
