Free scoring Osimhen offers apology to girl hit by his shot in 3-0 win over Specia



Osimhen had problems get back on to the pitch as supporters surrounded him to take selfies

Goal obsessed Napoli forward, Victor Osimhen had to climb through the crowd to offer apologies  to a young girl after unintentionally hitting her with a ball during his warm-up ahead of his team’s 3-0 defeat of Spezia.

But when the Nigerian in-form striker tried to return to the pitch to re-join his team-mates, fans surrounded him desperate to take selfies with him.

One opportunistic supporter leaned in to talk to Osimhen as he climbed over the advertising board.

He went on to score a brace that aided Napoli’s 16-point lead to stay atop in the Italian Serie A.

Osimhen has been in exceptional goal-scoring form so far this season, netting 14 league goals in 16 appearances.

Osimhen joined Napoli from Lille in 2020 for £62.4m, with 43 goals in 82 appearances across all competitions since.

His contract with Luciano Spalletti’s side expires in 2025 and talks over a new deal are thought not to have taken place yet.
