Napoli manager Luciano Spalletti says Victor Osimhen deserved to be sent off and has told him to be careful of his reactions in the future.
Osimhen was given a straight red card in the 21st minute of Napoli’s 2-0 win over Venezia at the Diego Armando Maradona Stadium on Sunday.
The Nigeria international was sent off for violent conduct after catching Venezia defender Daan Heyman with the arm during a corner.
Spalletti’s side labored to win the game, but he wasn’t impressed with Osimhen’s action and issue a strong warning to him.
He said: “The expulsion of Osimhen? He has to be careful of his emotional reactions,” Spalletti said as quoted by Ilnapolista.
“He is a strong attacker and all defenders will help each other. He will always have his hands on the defenders. He must be careful. The referee was corrected when I went to talk to him and he explained what he saw.”
The Club’s record signing will now miss Napoli’s next two league matches against Genoa and Juventus, on August 29 and September 11.
