Napoli Medics Accuse Super Eagles Doctors Of Making Osimhen’s Dislocated Shoulder Worse

Napoli medics believe Super Eagles doctors did more damage to Victor Osimhen’s dislocated shoulder while trying to put it back into place.

Osimhen dislocated his shoulder during Super Eagles’ 4-4 draw with Sierra Leone on matchday three of the 2021 AFCON qualifiers in Benin on November 13.

The former Lille striker was replaced while the scoreline was 4-2 before the Sierra Leonians went on to score two more goals.

Medical staff from the Eagles squad tried to pop it back into place on the field, then he returned to Italy for tests and a specialist consultation.

Now according to Tuttosport the shoulder dislocation has fully recovered, but Osimhen still can’t lift his arm properly.

This is allegedly because the incorrect technique used by the Nigerian doctors inflamed a tendon in his shoulder.

It would add even more to his recovery time and further irritate Napoli, who are missing their star striker during a key part of the season.

Osimhen has scored two goals in six Serie A appearances for Napoli since joining from Lille in the summer.

      In Naija everything is trial and error …. more errors, if you ask me. I’ve been a long-term advocate of maintaining conducive playing soccer pitches in Nigeria. Unfortunately, the nff big wigs don’t see the relationship between poor football pitches and the poor results our boys endure. 

      These are players who are used to lush pitches abroad. You bring them home and stage matches on gravel patches of land and expect them to perform. Are you right in your head? Why do teams in North Africa excel in aggressive high pressure soccer, which is the current emerging soccer style? Can our boys even practice this style, which involves swift movements, rapid turns, and blazing runs on our poor pitches? 

      And we are chorusing include 4 or more home-based players in the SE. How will these cope? Ponderous dinosaurs competing with the swift moving gazelle!

      We better make haste and do the right thing. 

  • It is a big lie we did everything possible not to aggravate the injury.napoli is trying to justify the reason why they did not want to release him even to come for the game. Our lawyers have been notified about this claim by napoli and we are ready to provide training undergone by each of us serving as doctors to the team.

    • Hope you have evidence to defender this claims?

    • Good job . For quickly debunking it. Even the player has confirmed you did the right things. No wonder Nigeria doctors are best in europe and America.

    You love a player, always pray God to protect all such players. Many dirty stuff not to be mentioned on public forum just so Nigeria’s image be protected. May Jehovah RAPHA bring perfect healing to Osimenegoals.

    Nonsense, I blame the NFF not the team doctors. Falling on a form, stone floor and grass is never the same. NFF took the boys to a stone base stadium, that’s why the injury occurs in a simple tackle that won’t bring such injury. What is wrong with Uyo stadium? That’s the best football pitch in the country at the moment. The coach and the players,including fans have never complained about that stadium before. NFF should do what is right and stop playing periwinkle politics with football.

    Bunch of nonsense. Are they saying the nigerian medics were not qualified. Abeg carry your nonsense noise else where. You guys were reluctant from day one not to want to release him. What a great way to make yourselves look good. Funny enough, FIFA wouldn’t have certified to be on the field if they don’t have the qualities to be a medic.

    • Yeboah 6 months ago

      Can’t you read between the lines? The Nigerian medics were not experienced enough. They made the case worse.

      • Kenneth 6 months ago

        What’s there to read, ,maybe you can shed more light for us. If they didn’t try to put the shoulder in place, they will come back and say they didn’t make an attempt to put the shoulder together. Let them go and sit down. You should be the one to read between the lines. They looking for excuses not to want to release him

    The risks our boys take to play for the national team!
    If Osimhen was not playing for a club like Napoli, he would have been on his own by now, with nobody to help with his recovery!
    The players are willing to risk so much when they come for internationals. Instead of NO FUTURE FOCUS to help them, they ask them to play on sub-par pitches, and won’t pay their bonuses on time. The failure to provide qualified, competent medics is the icing on the cake, really. This accusation by the Napoli medics, if proven true, has brought huge disgrace and shame on Nigeria.
    Thanks a lot, NO FUTURE FOCUS NFF!!!
