Osimhen has however, taken to social media to apologise to the club and fans for putting himself and teammates at harm’s way.
“I am so sorry for what happened, I was wrong to go to Nigeria in this moment, even if I have many loved ones over there, including my brothers,”
“I was wrong to take part in the party, I didn’t understand the severity of what I was doing. I apologise to the club, the coach, the team and the fans.” Osimhen wrote on Instagram.
Napoli had fined the player two weeks wages for failing to adhere to the protocols during his birthday celebration, with online videos showing the player without protective masks in a crowded environment.
