Super Eagles striker Victor Osimhen has been sanctioned for simulation by a Sport court based in Naples.
The court fined the Super Eagles forward €2000 for trying to trick the referee to award a penalty for Napoli against Cagliari at Diego Maradona stadium on Sunday.
Osimhen went down under a light touch in the box on the 66th minute and bagged a yellow for simulation, but the court believes the punishment was in enough.
“For having simulated having been subjected to a foul intervention in the opponent’s penalty area in the match against Cagliari at San Paolo,” read the statement as published www.calcionapoli24.
The striker has been in great form Napoli this season and he must watch his behavior on the pitch to avoid further punishment from the match officials and Football authorities in Italy.
