Victor Osimhen scored Napoli’s second goal against Udinese on Wednesday evening after being chosen to start the Serie A encounter despite the player’s relationship with the club souring in the past 24 hours, Reelradio.com.ng reports.
The Nigerian ended his four-game wait for a goal as he struck in the 39th-minute to double Napoli’s lead after Polish midfielder Piotr Zielinski initially put the hosts in-front.
Osimhen was played through on goal by Italian Matteo Politano and kept his cool to finish with a strike across the face of Marco Silvestri’s goal.
However, the usually emphatic celebrator instead refused to recognise his strike and instead adopted a mooted stance while team-mates ran over to congratulate him.
The Napoli faithful packed out in the stands at the Diego Maradonna stadium echoed their support for the troubled striker as they chanted his name while raucous cheers ensued.
