Africa’s Best Player Doesn’t Behave Like That, Ideye Blasts Osimhen

Ex-international, Brown Ideye, has told Victor Osimhen to apologise to Nigerians over his vitriolic attack on former Super Eagles coach Finidi George. Ideye, who played a pivotal role as the Eagles clinched their third African Cup of Nations AFCON in 2013 said the player’s attitude doesn’t align with the crown he wears as the African Player of the Year.

It will be recalled that Osimhen stormed his Instagram live to accuse Finidi of suggesting he skipped matches for the Super Eagles. His action has attracted widespread criticism and Ideye insisted the Napoli striker must apologize. Ideye said he reached out to Osimhen telling him he had no justification for the vituperative attack on Finidi. “What Victor did is wrong,” Ideye noted.

“A lot of people can say he had to defend himself. What are you defending, who are you trying to explain to that you have an injury? “You don’t need to explain to people that you have an injury that’s why you’re not in camp. Call the coach to see if he really said what he said before going out there to your social media platforms.

“I told him I’m disappointed in you but what you have to do is to go back to that social media and apologize to Nigerians and Finidi because no matter how we want to say it he’s a legend,” Ideye continued.
