Napoli Chief Confident Osimhen Will Be Fit For Verona Clash

Napoli sports director Cristiano Guintoli is upbeat Victor Osimhen will be fit for Sunday’s Serie A clash against Hellas Verona, reports Completesports.com.

Osimhen has missed the club’s last two games against Salernitana and Legia Warsaw due to injury.

The 22-year-old picked up the injury in training last week.

The Nigeria international returned to training on Tuesday but was omitted from the 4-1 win against Polish club Legia Warsaw on Thursday.

Guintoli however expects the striker to be available for the home game against Verona at the Diego Armando Maradona.

“Will Osimhen return against Verona? We will see,” Giuntoli told Sky Sport.

“His problem should be minor as he has trained with the other players.

“We are confident and we look forward.”

  • Victor My Lovely young bro, please don’t allow them to rush you back for this two games and Naija World Cup Qualifiers, at least not this week.

    We know you can come to the team and save face for Rohr, Pinnick and Ighalo as you consider Ighalo a senior bro to you and like the lovely humble boy you are, you are very respectful to your elders. But please allow Ighalo and Rohr the space to expose themselves this time around because, I have now seen Rohr character he can use any of our Top Young Guns as scape goats for his old legs. Please Vic let them Use their Ighalo for these 2 fixtures let us throw Ighalo in the deep end this time. As they have decided to abandon Awoniyi. Thank you continue to shine and SOAR HIGH SUPERSTAR!!!!!!!!!!!

    The good news is, Osimhen can play and has been boosted in the right direction. To me, I’m surprised it is happening soon. More points to Napoli

    I was just avoiding the normal noise. I always wait till you make a comment, Oseodion. That is really good to know as I see Victor Osimhen going for 3points or more depending on the calculation, litres, kb, hexa, deca. Let’s roll.
