Victor Osimhen missing in action in Napoli’s training ground



Victor Osimhen missing in action in Napoli's training ground

Nigerian football star, Victor Osimhen, missed out on training with his Napoli teammates on Monday, ahead of their UEFA Champions League quarter-final first-leg clash against AC Milan on Wednesday. The 24-year-old is still recuperating from a muscle injury, which he sustained while on international duty with the Super Eagles last month.

Osimhen, who is Napoli’s talismanic striker, has missed their last two games against AC Milan and Leece, and Napoli were hoping he would be fit enough to feature in Wednesday’s game against AC Milan at the San Siro. However, the results they were looking for did not materialize during training on Monday.

According to Gianluca Di Marzio, a well-known Italian journalist, Osimhen worked individually on the pitch before heading to the gym, indicating that he did not take part in squad training. The Nigerian striker is set to undergo medical tests on Tuesday to determine his availability for the game.

Napoli will be hoping that Osimhen recovers in time for the crucial match against AC Milan, as the striker has been in fine form for the Italian club this season. So far, he has scored ten goals in 23 appearances across all competitions.
