Doctor Reveals Length Of Osimhen’s Injury

Victor Osimhen will be sidelined for around a month , according to popular orthopedic doctor Matteo Vitali.

Osimhen sustained a thigh injury in Nigeria’s 2-2 friendly draw against the Green Falcons of Saudi Arabia last weekend.

The 24-year-old missed the subsequent friendly against the Mambas of Mozambique.

“I haven’t seen Osimhen, his injury is very common in athletes Ibra also had the same problem with a medium-grade lesion of the femoral biceps of the right thigh,” Vitali, an orthopedic doctor at the Orthopedics and Traumatology Unit of the San Raffaele Hospital in the Italian city of Milan told Tutto Napoli.

“Usually the protocol is quite standard, a minimum of twenty days of rest is needed with therapies aimed at mitigating the tissue lesion, then the injury must be evaluated during the course.

“After the 20-day period of therapy and rest, it will finally be possible to return to the field to train separately and then with the group,” he continued.

“With the return to training, more or less another ten days pass until we see him again in an official match.”

Osimhen has scored six goals in 10 appearances across all competitions for Napoli this season.

  • Let Eagles start thinking of Osimhen alternatives for AFCON next year because if Napoli crash out of UCL due to games their poacher will not play in, they would be reluctant to release him in January. 2 international windows thus far and 2 injuries. Not palatable for club that the country will not bankroll any aspect of treatment
