Super Eagles forward Victor Osimhen is expected to return to Naples in the next few days after Tuesday’s AFCON tie against Sierra Leone in Freetown was ruled out.
It was a huge sigh of relief for the Napoli bosses after words leaked that their prized assets Victor Osimhen will not be overlooked before the next Serie A matches against AC Milan.
Calciomercato reported Saturday night that it was a sense of apprehension at Napoli on Friday after Osimhen was forced to leave the pitch in the 74th minute due to injury after scoring one of the goals against Sierra Leone in Benin City. He was said to be concerned about the player’s condition after the former Lille forward was found to have a minor shoulder dislocation, but coach Genarro Gattuso and De Laurentiis were relieved after an X-ray came back negative, which revealed that the injury is nothing more than a mild blunt trauma to the arm.
The club now wants their star forward to return to Naples in the coming days so that the club’s doctor can determine the level of his injury and allow him to properly prepare for Napoli’s next clash against AC Milan. The Super Eagles drew 4-4 with Sierra Leone despite taking a comfortable 4-0 lead.
