Why Osimhen Must Learn To Control His Emotions -UEFA Vice President

UEFA Vice President Zbigniew Boniek has described Super Eagles striker, Victor Osimhen as a fantastic player that must learn to control his emotion against an opposing player in order not to always find himself in the bad books of referees.

Recall that referee Gianluca Aureliano gave Osimhen the matching order in the 23rd minute at Stadio Diego Armando Maradona after he was adjudged to have shoved Venezia midfielder Daan Heymans in the face during a corner kick struggle.

As a result of the straight red card, Osimhen will be expected to miss Napoli’s next two Serie A matches against Genoa and Juventus, on August 29 and September 11.

However, in a chat with Radio Kiss Kiss, Boniek urged the Nigerian international to always keep his cool and focus more on the game.

He also stated that Osimhen will learn from the ugly incident.

“The expulsion of Osimhen? They are hundredths of a second reactions, scams that can happen,” the former Polish international forward told Radio Kiss Kiss.

“But we must make the players understand that such behaviours must be avoided.

“He (Osimhen) is always very heated; he is quick and fast. But he’ll benefit from this episode.”

    Enough of this Bully, from what I saw that is not a red card that is a normal escape from a defender when attacking a ball from corner. The ball might ellude you doesn’t mean you’re not focused on the ball. For me this is pure Racism! They want to kill the fighting spirit of the boy. Africans are never regarded anywhere in the world except you’re doing something extra ordinary that will benefit them before they’ll value you.

      No, I disagree with you. Osihmen needs to control his temper and emotions. Though the guy pulled his shirt, but he made an attempt to hit the guy. He needs to understand he’s a feared striker, so, defenders will do everything to unseat him in front of goal. The comments up there are in no way a bully to Osimhen. Like he said, this punishment will shape his attitude in the field of play. Many top strikers around the world go through this phase in their careers and it’s no big deal. So, I don’t think he’s been bullied and racially treated at all.

    I beg to disagree, Maybe you need to replay the incident again to see that Victor was trying to free himself from the defender, The referee was just being too harsh. Its not like victor is a temperament player, so i don’t know what advise this people are giving too him.

      Hehehehe…Victor is not a temperamental player, but as Napoli’s centre forward he has acquired 2 red cards and 4 yellows and he hasnt even completed a full season at napoli yet…..we are not even counting the other yellow and red cards he had ffrom his 2 previous clubs…..LMAOOoo. Not only are you dumb…..you seem to be blind too…..LMAOOoo. Victor would have to bring an axe to the feild and split the heads of defenders before he can be classed as temperamental. Every other person in the world sees Victor as hot-headed on the pitch except jimmy’s dog……LNAOOOo. Liars of the same feathers indeed flock together….LMAOOoo
