Napoli returned to winning ways on Wednesday beating Udinese 4-1 at the Estadio Diego Maradona Stadium with Victor Osimhen playing a starring role.
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.
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.
Napoli shared a video since deleted, on their TikTok account showing the striker missing a penalty, with a high-pitched voice saying “gimme penalty please” dubbed over the top.
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.
