I didn’t arrange a birthday – Osimhen responds to violation of COVID-19 protocol
Victor Osimhen says he is unaware of the controversial birthday party he attended in Nigeria during the Christmas season, Completesports.com reports.
Upon his return to Naples, Osimhen tested positive for the coronavirus.
He took part in a surprise party without a face shield and Napoli fined the striker.
“Before going to Nigeria, I told my sister that I was not going to celebrate my birthday,” Osimhen told Omasports.
“I was in a bad mood because of the injury.
“I slept about six hours that day. When I woke up, my sister asked me to go down the stairs.
“If you look at what I put on, I was wearing a training shirt. I wouldn’t wear it for my birthday. I wouldn’t dress so casually.
“I could have celebrated my birthday in other ways, but I was not in a very good mood. I went downstairs and they played gospel music.
“I was there for about 10 minutes before my older brother called me upstairs. I didn’t have a party.
“After testing positive for COVID-19, I called my family and told them to get tested. They did everything and gave a negative result. “
