    Too bad.
    The cad took me off balance while rooting for the best for him. I never expected a direct red card but a Yellow.
    All the same, I wish Osimhen well.

  • Osimhen must be ready to face severe intimidation from opponents being a good striker on the pitch,he should control his temperament to always avoid being redcarded to the detriment of his team and his future respectively. I wish him the best in the subsequent matches

  • All I am going to add to this is if that was a white Italian Player the referee may have been more lenient. This is a LESSON Osimhen will learn that, he is African in Europe and should cover his own side of the street more so than the Italians and Europeans especially in Italy.

    However, not only from a race point of view but, in general. He did show a bit of over zeal in that situation, too much passion which we know is part of his game and, what makes him so special. We need not ask him to quench it however, he should channel it into the better parts of his game.

    The ref was just being biased. Saw the game and don’t know exactly what warranted the red card. The player was pushed off him, and you give a straight red card for that. Totally garbage
