Victor Osimhen, a Nigeria international and Napoli forward has berated his senior colleague and former Super Eagles player, Victor Ikpeba for criticizing him over the failure of the Nigerian team to qualify for the 2022 World Cup in Qatar.
This comes after Victor Ikpeba weighed in on the 1-1 draw against Ghana in Abuja which denied Nigeria the ticket using the away goal rule.
According to Ikpeba, Victor should have done better with some of the half chances that came his way during the course of the game.
He faulted his decision to go for the spectacular by trying an overhead kick where a control would have been the perfect option in such situation.
“Victor Osimhen is a good player, but is not yet a finished article, forget he’s playing for Napoli. Some of those crosses he might have controlled instead of trying to do a bicycle kick”
“He’s a still a young player, but I hope that he can improve where he is in Napoli and help the national team in the future. He needs to understand when to play the ball and when to play bicycle kicks”, he said.
Responding via Instagram, Victor made a remark, an insulting word in Yoruba aimed at the former Monaco forward tagged “Pundit Isonu” and as expected it generated reactions from his followers.
He went a step further by dropping an adage in Yoruba, which literally translates to a white chicken does not realize his age.. “Werey dem say make you no do bicycle kick?,” He said.
Barcelona women team forward Asisat Oshaola asked in reaction to his post. He replied by saying “I go continue dey do am no be that pundit go tell me wetin to do. AGBAYA”.
