Osimhen received a huge amount of money after scoring against his Super Eagles teammate Maduka Okoye on Monday night. 

Super Eagles star Victor Osimhen will receive €125k (₦186m) after scoring against his countryman Maduka Okoye in Napoli’s 1-1 draw against Udinese on Monday night.

Osimhen grabbed the headlines for Napoli in a match that had another Nigerian stand out for Udinese. 

The former Lille striker put the Neapolitans ahead in the 51st minute with a brilliant header from a Matteo Politano cross. 

Although Isaac Success’ finish in injury time denied Osimhen the winner and earned Udinese a precious point, the Chelsea target went home with €125k. 

Before the match, Naples news outlet, Napoli Onilinehad revealed that Osimhen would receive €125k bonus if he scored 15 league goals this season. 

The Nigerian striker was on 14 going into the match against The Little Zebras, with his header in the match taking his league tally to 15. 

As a result, Osimhen earned €125k in bonus for scoring 15 league goals this season as stipulated in his contract. 

Osimhen’s 15 league goals in 23 games this season are impressive, even though he has not been able to match the 26 he scored to fire Napoli to the title last season. 

The 25-year-old missed a major part of the season after helping Nigeria reach the final of the 2023 Africa Cup of Nations. 

But despite missing a few games due to international commitments and injury, he is on course to have his second-best year in Naples.
