‘Feels So Good To Be Back’  —Osimhen

Victor Osimhen has expressed delight after returning from injury to feature for Napoli in Monday’s league tie at Bologna.

Osimhen was back in action for the Partenopei for the first time since November following a facial injury.

The Super Eagles striker collided with Inter’s Milan Skriniar which saw him being rushed to the hospital.

He had to undergo surgery and was expected to be out for three months before making a remarkable recovery.

He was brought on in the 71st minute in Monday’s game which Napoli won 2-0, thanks to Hirving Lozano’s brace.

And speaking about his return, Osimhen praised his teammates for their impressive performance in the win.

He wrote on Twitter:“Feels So Good To Be Back!Solid Performance From The Boys.Onto The Next One,GOD Is The Greatest💯We Move.“

It would be recalled that Osimhen was listed in the Super Eagles squad for the Africa Cup of Nations.

However, he was replaced after testing positive for coronavirus.

    In as much as I adore Osimhen and appreciate what he does for the national team…. I’m still trying to question the basis for him opting out when he initially said he was good to go and then plays a match for Napoli before our last group match…… He could have been very useful for our knock out stage.

      He never opted out. you will recalled that he personally declare himself ready and fit for the AFCON via his twitter handle but the Napoli medics have other ulterior motive from saying he will be out for three months to him having COVID. Eventually, all those lines were unfounded and his absence was equally replaced effectively with Awoniyi bullying defenders. No doubt, with Eguavoen remaining as the gaffer, the whole continent of Africa will tremble when the world cup qualifiers kick-off.
