Ugbade said advised Osimhen to look straight at where he is going and he should not yield to any unnecessary distraction that would deny him the chance of playing at the bigger stage of his career. “Racism is everywhere in Europe and Serie A did not tolerate that nonsense. They fight against it always because there are black players in the league. FIFA and UEFA are also supporting them to fight racism. Osimhen should not use racism as an excuse, he should focus on where he’s going for now,” he said. Osimhen has been contemplating about the Napoli offers since he visited the club with league of agents on his neck to accept the deal. “Every good player needs an opportunity to market himself irrespective of where the offer is coming from and he’s fortunate to play in the top leagues now Serie A. He should move and earn himself more respect and more money,” Ugbade said. Osimhen will sign for Napoli over the next 48 hours, according to Football Italia, as the problem was always with his agent, who is now threatening to sue the Lille striker.
