Super Eagles and Napoli striker, Victor Osimhen was sent out of training by Napoli Coach, Luciano Spalletti for ‘talking too much’.
The 23-year-old Super Eagle was kicked out of the Partenopei training after he apparently complained of a bad tackle.
In the video, the 23-year-old Super Eagle is seen ranting towards new teammate Leo Ostigard, allegedly complaining about a foul he had committed on him.
Osimhen is seen being calmed down by Cameroon international Andre-Frank Zambo Anguissa but he continued to rant.
At this point, the Napoli Manager Luciano is forced to intervene, walking straight to Osimhen and ordering the player to leave the pitch. Spalletti is said to have uttered: “You are talking too much, go and have a shower.”
The Napoli forward has now been warned to work on his attitude to avoid taking a similar career path as Italian international Mario Balotelli.
Balotelli’s career has been interwoven with several disciplinary issues back pedaling to his stints at Manchester City, Inter Milan and AC Milan.

And while many have faulted Osimhen’s reaction to the incident, another set of supporters have stood by the player, insisting he was right to question the tackle as it could have denied him a chance to kick off the Serie A season with Napoli.
Napoli will kick off the new season with an away game against Verona at Marcantonio Bentegodi on August 15.
