Osimhen slapped €5000 fine for violent conduct

Victor Osimhen has been fined €5000 for violent conduct in his first game of the season for Napoli last week.

The Nigerian striker was sent off for a violent challenge in the first half of their match against Venezia in the Serie A, and was punished with a two-match ban.

Osimhen received his marching orders in 22nd minute by referee Gianluca Aureliano for violent conduct against Daan Heymans after appearing to strike the opposition during a corner.

This was the first time ever that the Nigerian has been sent off in a league encounter during his professional career.

The two-match ban will be appealed by Napoli, but the 22-year-old has already been fined.
