Osimhen apologizes to Punch after saying “thunder go fire una”



Nigerian footballer and Napoli forward, Victor Osimhen has apologised to The Punch for the “type of language” he used in expressing his thoughts after the national daily allegedly misquoted him.

On Sunday, the Punch had quoted the 21-year-old as saying that he wants to emulate South American legend, Diego Maradona who helped Napoli to two Italian Championships.

“I never said such a thing,” Osimhen lashed back at the publication, saying “y’all copy paste journalist just like to fabricate lies”.

He stated that since his father died he hadn’t granted any interview whatsoever. “Stop this nonsense else na thunder go fire una,” he tweeted.

The 2015 CAF Youth Player of the Year is now apologising to those who felt offended with his choice of words, adding “I still be una boy”.

“As much as I dislike being misquoted or taken out of context by the media, I want to apologise to @MobilePunch and other journalists that felt offended for the type of language I used in my earlier post, sorry about it, make una no vex I still be una boy…peace.” the football star wrote.
