Nigerian winger Victor Osimhen will be punished for breaking the deadly coronavirus guidelines while on holidays in his home country.
Napoli boss Gennaro Gattuso made the comments after a video clip of Africa's most expensive star spraying musician money surfaced on the internet.
The 22-year-old has been out of action since early November after picking up a shoulder injury while on international duty for the Super Eagles.
“There have been reports that the striker will be fined by the club and the gaffer did not rule that out.
“When I made a mistake, Marcello Lippi used to say he’d let me stew in my own juices for a while, to recognise what I’d done. That’s what Osimhen has to do now.
“He has already apologised, he’s a lad who gives his all when working. He made a silly mistake, he knows that.
"I am a coach, I don’t decide fines, especially as I was the one who gave the all-clear for him to return to Nigeria and so both of us were left embarrassed by what happened.”
Osimhen has scored twice and assisted one other goal in six Italian League games since he joined them in a mega-deal last summer.
Legit.ng earlier reported that Napoli medical team has accused Nigerian doctors of aggravating Victor Osimhen's shoulder injury while trying to help him ease off pains.
The 22-year-old suffered a setback during the Super Eagles' disappointing 4-4 draw against lowly rated Sierra Leone in last month's Africa Cup of Nations qualifier in Benin.
He was removed in the 78th minute with Paul Onuachu taking his place for the remainder of the game, having already registered his name on the scores sheet earlier in the first half.
