Victor Osimhen has revealed that e was skeptical about a move to Napoli because of racism regularly experienced in the Italian Serie A.
The Super Eagles 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.”
