Osimhen to return to Italy after injury scare


Napoli striker Victor Osimhen will return to Italy in the next few hours after being injured on international duty with Nigeria. The 24-year-old was forced to come off during Nigeria’s 2-2 draw with Saudi Arabia on Friday, with the suggestion being that he has suffered a hamstring injury.

Il Mattino report that the player will soon undergo instrumental examinations to understand whether it is simply an overload or an injury (in the latter case, he would need to be on the sideliens for about ten days).

The striker is highly unlikely to feature in the Patenopei’s next Serie A match against Verona and could skip the Champions League match against Union Berlin as well.


Serie A obsessive.
