Victor Osimhen of Napoli has come under fire once more for his attitude from former Nigerian striker Victor Ikpeba.
Despite being a vocal player, Ikpeba declared in an interview with Comfort 95.1FM that he respected his more senior teammates.
The former Monaco star reiterated his claim that he had no personal beef with Osimhen and promised to keep offering the 23-year-old counsel.
“Human beings are different. I remember when my time as a professional footballer many years ago, I had my personality and character. I was very outspoken but had respect for senior players.
“Osimhen is still a young guy. I don’t care what people think about me.
“When anything is on social media, people tend to take sides. I honestly don’t have any problem with Victor Osimhen.
“Before the boy went to Napoli, he was a decent young chap. I hope people around the boy advise him. He can’t continue to get into the wrong books as a star player of club and country.
“I honestly want Osimhen to do well, he has the attributes and talent to do so. Football can be unforgiving sometimes. Look at Mario Balotelli, a lot of Nigerian footballers have had this opportunity and lost it. Osimhen is at the right place and right time. My advice for him is to calm down,” Ikpeba said
