Napoli to appeal Osimhen’s 2-game suspension

Napoli have confirmed they will appeal the two-match ban handed out to Victor Osimhen.

Osimhen was sent off during the Partenopei’s 2-0 victory over Venezia on Sunday.

The Super Eagles striker was given the marching orders in the 23rd minute by referee Gianluca Aureliano for violent conduct against Daan Heymans, after appearing to strike the opposition during a corner.

That was the first time ever that Osimhen would be sent off in a league game during his professional career.

Notwithstanding the numerical disadvantage, Luciano Spalletti’s men secured all points at stake, thanks to goals from captain Lorenzo Insigne and Elif Elmas.

Osimhen will miss their next two Serie A matches against Genoa and Juventus, on August 29 and September 11 respectively.

A statement released by Napoli on its official website read: “Victor Osimhen has been handed a two-match ban following his red card against Venezia.

“The striker was sanctioned “for voluntarily slapping an opponent in the face away from the ball”.

“The club will make an appeal. Luciano Spalletti was booked during the match.” Dailypost
