Napoli Doctor Gives Injury Update On Osimhen

Napoli doctor Raffaele Canonico says Victor Osimhen is still few weeks away from recovery, reports Completesports.com.

Osimhen has been sidelined since picking up an injury in Napoli’s UEFA Champions League clash against Liverpool this month.

The Nigeria international has missed Napoli’s last three games against Spezia, Rangers and AC Milan.

“Pace is one of his peculiar characteristics. We are talking of an athlete whose top speed sprint is 34/35 Km/h. To reach that and to achieve specific standards he must be well trained,” Canonico told Radio Kiss Kiss as quoted by Calcionapoli1926.it.

“In general, the recovery time for these sorts of injuries is five weeks, so the week of the Cremonese clash is crucial.”

Osimhen is still playing with a protective face mask despite having recovered from a cheekbone injury suffered last year: “He still uses it to feel safe, even if he has completely recovered now,” Canonico revealed.
