Napoli star Victor Osimhen openly expressed dissatisfaction with the Nigerian national team coach.

The situation escalated until someone wisely took away his phone.

Victor Osimhen, one of the world's most sought-after strikers, has been shining at Napoli in recent years and is expected to transfer to a more competitive team this summer. However, he recently caused a major uproar in his home country's national team by vividly expressing his great dissatisfaction with the Nigerian coach during a live Instagram broadcast.

What sparked Osimhen's outburst? The striker missed the last two World Cup qualifying matches due to injury.

In their latest match, Nigeria suffered a shocking defeat to Benin and have not won any of their four qualifying matches. After the match, coach Finidi George surprised everyone by blaming Osimhen, suggesting he could have played despite his injury.

"I have lost all respect for this man! After two poor performances by Nigeria, everyone wants to blame me. I know how many matches I've played for Nigeria despite being injured, and I've always left my heart on the field," raged Osimhen.

The live broadcast ended only when someone took Osimhen's phone away, and shortly after, Finidi George offered his resignation.
