Napoli’s horrendous season has a new dramatic chapter as star forward Victor Osimhen has called out teammate Khvicha Kvaratskhelia’s agent for claiming a rumor about him wanting to leave the club for a Saudi Arabian side.
Kvaratskhelia’s agent, Mamuka Jugeli, spoke on Georgian television saying that he thinks Osimhen plans on leaving Napoli at the end of the season.
Osimhen didn’t let that slide and retorted with a fiery Instagram story directed at Jugeli.

“Dear Mamuka Jugeli, you are a piece of filth and a disgrace. I’m embarrassed at your season of reasoning. Dumbfuck! KEEP MY NAME OUT OF YOUR MOUTH!!!” Osimhen wrote.
The Nigerian striker is out on international duty for the Africa Cup of Nations. It might be an awkward reunion between him and Kvaratskhelia when the tournament is over.
Osimhen’s agent, Roberto Calenda, voiced his displeasure with Jugeli too. Calenda used fewer expletives in his statement.

This isn’t the first time this season that Osimhen and social media haven’t gone well. In September the person running Napoli’s TikTok account landed themselves in hot water after posting a video making fun of the club’s star striker.
Napoli, who won the league last season, sit in ninth place and 20 points behind first place Inter Milan.
