Serie A graphic sparks backlash, ignites debate over MVP in social media controversy; Fans cry foul

The recent social media controversy surrounding the Serie A Twitter account's post of a graphic featuring Khvicha Kvaratskhelia and Diego Maradona has brought attention to the topic of Victor Osimhen's recognition in the Most Valuable Player award.

The post, which depicted Kvaratskhelia receiving a crown from Maradona, has sparked a backlash from fans who believe that Osimhen's contribution to Napoli's first title in 33 years has been unfairly ignored.

Osimhen's scoring prowess throughout the season has been unmatched, with 22 goals and four assists under his belt. However, some fans have raised concerns that his lack of flashy playmaking skills may cause him to be overlooked for the MVP award.

This sentiment is not new to Osimhen, as he previously faced similar criticism during the 2015 U-17 World Cup, where he scored 10 goals and won the Golden Boot but was passed over for the Golden Ball in favour of Kelechi Nwakali.

While Nwakali was undoubtedly a key player in the team's success, fans questioned whether his contribution was more valuable than Osimhen's scoring prowess. The same sentiment applies to the current situation, as fans wonder whether Kvaratskhelia's flashy playmaking skills are more deserving of recognition than Osimhen's goal-scoring prowess.

The controversy surrounding Osimhen's MVP chances has sparked a heated debate on social media, with many Nigerians expressing their discontent with the perceived snub.

While it remains to be seen who will ultimately win the MVP award, Osimhen's impressive scoring record speaks for itself and should not be overlooked. Ultimately, the value of a player should be judged based on their overall contribution to the team's success, rather than their flashy individual skills.
