Napoli forward Victor Osimhen has been defended by his agent Roberto Calenda following his breach of Covid-19 protocols.

Calenda defended his family's decision to throw Osimhen a surprise birthday party and insisted that people must know 'the context' before judging the situation.

Calenda revealed how the 22-year-old had been going through 'a difficult period in recent months' after losing his father and that he had been struggling with injury.
Calenda admitted that the forward had 'made a mistake' but asked that his wrongdoing was not compared to that of going to a 'disco' in Ibiza.
Osimhen's agent told Il Mattino:'He should not be accused of a family party. He was naive, but you also need to know the context to get a complete picture of the issue.
