Victor Osimhen has expressed his delight after he returned to Lille’s squad ahead of their league clash away to AS Monaco on Saturday, Completesports.com reports.
Osimhen was substituted early in the first half against Monaco in the French League Cup and was rushed to the hospital after he complained of dizziness and pain.
He opened scoring for Lille before going off while his replacement Loic Remy bagged a brace.
“Back with the squad, major thanks to GOD almighty I really appreciate everyone that reaches out to me, GOD bless y’all another big game tomorrow,” Osimhen wrote on his Instagram page.
Earlier on Friday, Lille boss Christophe Galtier, in his pre-match press conference, had declared Osimhen fit for the trip to Stade Louis II.
“Victor returned from Monaco yesterday after having passed the medical examinations. They showed that he is fit to play tomorrow,” Galtier revealed.
“He had a very thorough assessment, and today we got the green light that he can play. And he wants to play.”
Osimhen has scored 12 goals in 23 appearances in all competitions for Lille this season.
Lille are currently third on 31 points in the league table, 11 points behind leaders Paris Saint-Germain.
