Napoli Celebrate Osimhen’s Return From Injury

Napoli have celebrated the return of Victor Osimhen from injury, after he featured in Monday’s league game at Bologna.

Osimhen made his first appearance for Napoli since November 2021, when he was introduced for Dries Mertens in the 71st minute.

Osimhen had been out since sustaining a facial injury against Inter when he collided with Milan Skriniar.

He was expected to be out for three months but recovered in time to return to action for the Luciano Spalletti’a side.

And following his return, Napoli took to their verified Twitter handle to welcome the Super Eagles star.

“Welcome back, Victor! 🦸‍♂️

💙 #ForzaNapoliSempre.”

Osimhen is Napoli’s second joint top scorer with five league goals this season.

  • I’m starting to believe that this is a plan to refuse Osinhen from playing for Nigeria in the Afcon. We are into our 2 game and he has started playing for Napoli. This should be investigated. Even the Osinhen could not talk. The NFF chairman Amaju who boast of connection and the NFF in general could not on behalf of Nigeria do an independent fitness test before allowing Osinhen to stay. Osimhen is the worse. If it’s true he colabo with Napoli not to play, that’s traitor. We missed him but it seems he doesn’t. All those congratulatory messages are not sincere congratulations.

      Osimehn wanted to play. He announced it on Twitter that he was fit and available for selection, that is why his name was included in the list. He later tested positive for covid and that prevented him from traveling with the squad.

      My only surprise is that after testing positive, he was able to travel back to Italy. Maybe he tested negative a few days later. But if he later tested negative, why didn’t he join the others in Cameroun instead of going to Italy?

      I think the fault is from the NFF. They had the backing of FIFA laws. If they had insisted, Osimehn would have been in Cameroun.

      This is Awoniyi’s opportunity to prove himself. If he doesn’t he can’t complain of being marginalised in future. And his fans will also have nothing to blame the coaches for.

        5 Senegalese players tested positive for COVID and they remained in camp. Remember he was threatened with a lawsuit. I think Napoli was selfish. I won’t support them again.

        You did not follow the story closely, Osimhen tried everything he could just for him to be part of the team, buh he was treghtened by Napoli. About the covid, he tested negative before he travelled back. The same Napoli and it’s medical team that said Osimhen is not be feat until three months before he could play, playing him after 2 months. When we were saying this that Napoli actually know what they are doing, some pple were arguing unnecessarily.

      I also believe that his club didn’t want him at the AFCON. They knew he would be fit and totally healed. His participation in their recent game was not a Christmas miracle. It was all planned long ago. But, as mentioned earlier, the NFF should have insisted.

       
    • Just be happy, he is ok and Nigeria is playing well, to me Afcon dont matter, i believe more in Fifa, So let him be and be happy for him, Ok

        How can you say AFCON doesn’t matter, this is a competition we have chance of winning or are we going to world cup to win it. We call ourselves giant of Africa, a footballing nation and so on. Some countries has 7, 5, 4 AFCON glories and we say it doesn’t matter, until we loose our respect in the continent that is when it will matter

         
      • Permit me to say that, “you lack cultural activism, patriotism” in short you’re just who you are, “sealed mumu”!

        AFCON don’t matter, you said!
        So, your father doesn’t matter if you happened to be in a position where Osimhen is, abi?

      Had NFF ever done anything right apart from refusing to pay both players and coach their benefit. From switching players with dual nationality to keep record with yellow cards or study when and when no to replace players, is it making team list available for all to see or sending players invitation. It’s only God that will be our guide

    Osimhen is not the only one we missed in this tournament. We equally missed the current Golden Booth holder in Belgium Paul Ounachu. Victor & Paul are big game changers. Let’s pray that both of them will be available for Ghana in March for the FIFA playoffs.
