Napoli head coach Rudi Garcia says Victor Osimhen is “invested 100%” in the club after the striker scored in his first game since being mocked by the club on social media.
Osimhen scored his side’s second goal in a comfortable 4-1 win against Udinese, but made no attempt to celebrate before he was mobbed by his team-mates.
Napoli had earlier shared a video, since deleted, on their TikTok account showing Osimhen missing a penalty, with a high-pitched voice saying “gimme penalty please” dubbed over the top.
Osimhen’s agent has threatened to take legal action against Napoli.

The Nigeria striker scored 26 goals in 32 league appearances to help Napoli win their first Serie A title in 33 years last season.
