NewsBand reported that Finidi who resigned earlier today had expressed his frustration with Osimhen’s disposition towards the national team, adding that he is unable to persuade the Napoli talisman to play for the Super Eagles.

However, Osimhen who got angered by the comments and, in a live Instagram video on Saturday, opened up on the circumstances that culminated to his absence from the Super Eagles last two World Cup qualifiers, adding that he and his doctor properly briefed Finidi.

He said, “I knew things like these would happen and that’s why I have the videos and screenshots of when I called Finidi while I was with the doctor in Germany.”

“I got injured in our (Napoli’s) last game against Lecce and I went to the MRI scan. And I called Finidi there for him to listen to the doctor too.

“I called him (Finidi) and asked him to allow me to come to the camp to be with the boys and I spoke to some of my teammates too but he said I have to be with my family.

“I’m not addressing anything, everybody knows I play my heart out whenever I’m playing for the club or national team. I’ll share the screenshot and videos of my conversation with Finidi for the sake of those believing what Finidi said.

“I’ve lost respect for that man because before I disrespect anybody, I always respect them.”
