Victor Osimhen has scored as a Napoli player today and the Super Eagles striker celebrated his first Serie A goal with #EndPoliceBrutality shirt.
Osimhen’s first Napoli goal came against Atalanta in the 43rd minute.
After scoring, Osimhen was seen holding up a shirt with the inscription “End Police Brutality in Nigeria”.
Earlier, the Nigerian had tweeted in support of #EndSARS protesters in his country.
Napoli paid French club Lille a club record fee of up to 80 million euros ($94.6 million) to bring Nigeria forward to southern Italy on a five-year deal.
The total fee is almost double Napoli’s previous club record of around 40 million euros paid for Gonzalo Higuain in 2013 and Hirving Lozano last year.
Napoli finished seventh in Serie A and qualified for the Europa League after winning the Italian Cup, their first trophy in six years.
