One joke too many: Why is the champion star threatening to sue her? | Israel Hayom


Highlights: Napoli striker Victor Osimhen missed a penalty against Bologna. The club posted a video on their official TikTok account mocking the player. The video has since been removed. The team is struggling to replicate last season's success in Serie A. The match was played at Stadio Olimpico in Naples, Italy, which was won 1-0. The game was played in front of a crowd of 2,000 people, the highest attendance in the history of the Serie A season.

Victor Osimhen missed a crucial penalty, and his Napoli team laughed at him, according to his agent, on their official TikTok account • The stirring video inside

Italian champions Napoli have a rather lame season opener. They are stuck for now, after five rounds, closer to the middle of the table than to the top, struggling on the pitch to replicate last season's sweeping football.

Beyond that, it seems that the atmosphere in the dressing room and between the club's leaders and players is also not good, culminating this week in a particularly bizarre moment, which may end in court.

During the last league game, in which Napoli disappointed with a 0-0 win against Bologna, striker Victor Osimhen missed a penalty that cost the Neapolitans important points. He was also subsequently replaced and left the field angry.

Soon after—and there's no telling what went through the club's media person's mind—the team posted a video on its official TikTok account mocking Osimhen for missing the penalty.

Now, the player's agent, Roberto Calende, has announced that he and the player "reserve the right to sue the club for mocking the player through a TikTok video, which was posted and taken down".

Caldana also issued a statement on Twitter, writing: "What happened today on Naples' official TikTok account is unacceptable. The video caused serious damage to my client."

Naples is in no hurry to respond to the agent's remarks, although they took care to remove the mocking video. And now, presumably, the parties will try to calm things down, and close the story within the club and not go to court.
