Simy comes good for Salernitana off the bench, Authorities open investigation into Osimhen’s Racist chants Claims


Simy Nwankwo came off the bench to inspire Salernitana to their first away win of the season, with a 2-1 triumph at Venezia.

The Nigerian set up Andrea Schiavone’s extra time winner, to register his first assist of the season, and has now contributed three goals to Salernitana’s survival battle.
Simy’s compatriot Joel Obi played 76 minutes in the tie, while forward David Okereke was substituted in the 74th minute for home side, Venezia.
Meanwhile, the Italian Serie A authorities have confirmed investigations proceeding against AS Roma regarding racist chants aimed at Napoli striker Victor Osimhen during the two clubs’ league clash.

The game ended scoreless, and Osimhen, who was on for 90 minutes terrorized the hosts time and again coming closest to scoring.
However, Giallorossi fans tried putting off the striker, with a few crossing the line through discriminatory chants.
The FIGC Prosecutor’s Office will now investigate the situation with a view to sanctioning any erring party.
Osimhen has eight goals in all competitions this season.
