Victor Osimhen, Super Eagles of Nigeria striker, has been seen in a viral video mocking Hellas Verona fans after scoring in Napoli 5-2 win.

The 25-year-old, who was a victim of racial abuse by Verona fans last season, responded to the fresh mockery directed at him and other black players at Napoli during their opening Serie A clash on Monday night.

Monkey chants were said to have been heard from Hellas Verona fans before Osimhen scored his goal.

Napoli had gone behind on 29 minutes before the Nigerian completed the turnaround on the stroke of halftime.
