Fear Of Racism Almost Stopped Me From Signing For Napoli – Victor Osimhen

Nigerian striker, Victor Osimhen has revealed that the fear of racism almost stopped him from signing for Serie A giants, Napoli.

The Striker joined the Italian side from Lille on a club record fee of 80 million euros ($94.6 million).

“There was a bit of scepticism on my part, because the issue of racism is a problem that exists everywhere,” Osimhen told journalists on Wednesday.

“Then I visited the city of Naples, saw the environment with my own eyes and realised that I am in a wonderful city.

“(Racism) is a worldwide issue. I’m sure I have chosen well and the Neapolitans will make me feel at home with their love.”
