Napoli Provide Fresh Update On Osimhen’s Injury

Serie A club Napoli have provided a fresh update on Victor Osimhen’s rehabilitation from injury, Completesports.com reports.

The former Lille attacker has been sidelined for more than a month after suffering a dislocated shoulder while representing Nigerian in the Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers in November.

“Osimhen is doing well and improving day by day. There is no mystery, it is not an exceptional case. At Villa Stuart we had a consultation with Prof. Castagna, who has diagnosis of Nigerian medical staff confirmed ,”Napoli’s head of medical staff Raffaele Canonico told Radio Goal.

“I clarify that it is the first traumatic event on the boy’s shoulder: there is no recurrence. It is the first time that he has this type of injury on his right shoulder. On the left he had already had an injury.

“I congratulate my Nigerian colleagues because their speed in the clinical intervention approach was really sudden and of a high level. For Osimhen it was a dislocation that does not require surgery.

” Every injury has a story of its own. It ranges from 30-40 days to 60-70 days for a simple dislocation. The therapy works are used to restore total functionality, to creation of a joint protection.

“The physiotherapists and the trainers are doing a job of the highest level. He is a boy of 21 years and the psychological aspect that intervenes in the response to the injury must also be understood.

“When will we see him on the pitch? He is improving significantly. I hope to see him on the pitch before the Christmas break.”

Osimhen has scored two goals and provided one assist from six Serie A appearances in the 2020-21 season.

        Unfortunately, this platform’s comment section is becoming renowned for such atavistic statements borne out of a warped view of football workings. They come here to peddle conspiracy theory trash instead of presenting reasoned debates for intellectual discourse. Fools.

    It may be a struggle for the Club to allow him respond to Nigeria’s call from now on. They paid Eighty million dollars for his services and now this is what they got in return from playing
    for Nigeria. If that match was played in Uyo, this injury would, perhaps, have been avoided. The Benin stadium’s turf was not the best that Nigeria could offer.

    “I CONGRATULATE MY NIGERIAN COLLEAGUES,BECAUSE THEIR SPEED IN THE CLINICAL INTERVENTION APPROACH WAS REALLY SUDDEN AND OF A HIGH LEVEL”.This caught my attention,and am glad because it is a vote of confidence on the Super Eagles Medical staffs.

    Don’t know where the evil news came out from that the Napoli doctors indicted the se doctors as worsening the injury to the Osimen.Whoever peddled that wicked news must be a Nigerian and am sure some of those who are simply the enemies of Super Eagles.But as Nigerians we should at least hold back a little when it comes to issues bothering on National Unity more so where it is not true.But instead we want to pull down at all cost not minding the no.of joy that will cause.

    This same attitude of Nigerians is what has torn Nigeria apart now,where with the aid of false and wicked news we peddle rumour passing information so dangerously that even lifes have been lost.Wonder why Odegbami and omo9ja did not come out to correct this news fast before getting to a dangerous ends if they are that adept with information.

    Anyways,am glad all that has been corrected now and I say good jobs to our Nigeria doctors and the se handlers.

    In addition,@ Edowman my brother,can’t count the no.of times a super Eagle player was invited to team and could not make it cos of the injury he sustained in his club.Aside from the season of competition say world cup and Afcon, this players hardly spend one week on international duty.The buck of the time they are with their clubs.The worst injuries these players sustain in their life time is during their playing times with the club.So it will be wrong to say cos Osimhen got injured on National duty the club will find it difficult to release him again.Aside the fact that injury is part of the game,no club has such prerequisite not to release a player duly invited for national duty.Thanks.
