After a successful season in Serie A and Osimhen helped Napoli to win the Scudetto after 33 years, he returned to Nigeria to spend his holiday.
Onazi explained that the ex-Lille player’s success is that of every Nigerian. He said people who were waiting for Victor to help them will go and start maligning his name once he is unable to provide the monetary assistance they seek.
The former Lazio midfielder asked everyone to be understanding and give Osimhen some breathing space so that he can get his life in order, because as footballers’ they do not play forever, and they have no pension.
He noted that as someone gets more money in life that’s also how the problems around him keeps increasing and piling up.
Onazi urged Nigerians to protect the Napoli forward and allow him to enjoy the little moment he has to spend in Nigeria before he flies back to Italy.
