Serie A Upload Another Controversial Post As Debate Over Osimhen, Kvaratskhelia Rages On

Serie A Upload Another Controversial Post As Debate Over Osimhen, Kvaratskhelia Rages On

Serie A has provoked a new round of reactions after pitting Victor Osimhen against Khvicha Kvaratskhelia. The two have been Napoli’s best players this season as the Partenopei won the league after over 30 years. Osimhen was on target against Fiorentina on Sunday to take his tally to 23 goals for the season.

Serie A’s official Twitter account has once again uploaded another controversial picture days after Napoli won their first Scudetto in 33 years.

The aftermath of Napoli’s win has been punctuated by a debate over who between Victor Osimhen and Khvicha Kvaratskhelia was the face of their title triumph.

Fans, especially Osimhen’s loyalists from Africa, feel hard done by as Serie A’s account continues to hand the Nigerian striker a peripheral significance despite being the league’s top scorer.

Seemingly not taking a cue from the backlash their post on Saturday received, Serie A followed it up with another a few minutes before Napoli’s clash against Fiorentina.

In the first graphic, Diego Maradona was seen placing the new crown of King of Naples on Kvaratskhelia’s head, with fans arguing that Osimhen, and not the Georgian, deserved to be in the picture.

As reported by Sports Brief, Lega Serie A Twitter came under attack over the controversial graphics posted on the account.

The second one was amended to include Osimhen and club captain Giovanni Di Lorenzo as they ascended a flight of stairs. But the bone of contention herein was Kvaratskhelia was once again placed in front of his teammate.

It was a re-enactment of Maradona’s photograph where the Argentine legend was on the same stairs. There were no other players in Maradona’s photo, which means the account introduced a new set of players to accommodate Osimhen.

Osimhen is so far on 23 goals and four assists, while Kvaratskhelia has chipped in with 12 goals and 10 assists. The post by the Serie A account has brought about fears that Osimhen might get snubbed in the Most Valuable Player of the season.
