Super Eagles striker Victor Osimhen has reacted to racial abuse from Fiorentina fans after Sunday’s Serie A fixture.
Osimhen released a statement on his verified Twitter handle urging people to educate others and make them understand how disgusting racism is.
The insults were heard during the post-match interviews after the Partenopei earned a 2-1 Serie A victory at the Stadio Artemio Franchi.
Napoli defender Kalidou Koulibaly heard the racist abuse from fans in the stands, which were aimed at him, Osimhen and Andre-Frank Zambo Anguissa.
Following the incident, Fiorentina director general Joe Barone went to personally apologise to Koulibaly and his teammates.
And reacting to the abuse Osimhen wrote:”Speak to your kids, your parents, make them understand how disgusting it is to hate an individual because of the color of their skin.”
Osimhen was once again outstanding for Napoli as they claimed their seventh straight league win.
