According to reports, the Italian club has also prevented the striker from renewing his Nike sponsorship contract.

Since joining Napoli from Lille in July 2020, Osimhen has immediately established himself as a fan favorite, with his goals helping the club compete for the Serie A title.

The Nigerian forward also interacts with his fans on social media platforms such as Instagram and Twitter on a daily basis, but it has now been claimed that Napoli monitor what he posts online.

What has Victor Osimhen commented about the reports on social media?

According to the Italian newspaper La Repubblica, Osimhen’s contract includes a clause that gives Napoli access to his social media passwords.

The provision is also rumored to prevent the 23-year-old from extending his sponsorship deal with Nike, which is set to expire in 2023 because Nike does not represent Napoli.

The club is said to double-check everything Osimhen says to ensure he doesn’t hurt their brand, but he has recently denied these reports.

On Twitter, Osimhen shared a link to the disputed La Repubblica article with the description “Fake news.”
