Sporting Charleroi striker, Victor Osimhen is doubtful for Sunday’s Belgian Pro Division league clash against Zulte Waregem due to injury, reports Completesportsnigeria.com.
Osimhen suffered a thigh injury in Sporting Charleroi’s 2-0 win over KAA Gent last Friday and had to be replaced in additional time of the win.
Charleroi manager, Felice Mazzu hints the Nigeria international will undergo some tests to ascertain the level of injury.
“Osimhen will undergo some tests in the coming days,” Mazzu told Belgian website, dhnet.be.
“The injury didn’t look so bad from the start but we had to substitute him so as not to worsen it. I think he has received some very heavy tackles and this should make the referees give him some level of protection.
“We may lose Victor Osimhen for the next few weeks, and everyone has seen what impact the latter has on our game.”
“This is the lot of all the teams, but we have players to replace the injured and the suspended.”
Osimhen, 19, who is on a season-long loan at Sporting Charleroi from Wolfsburg have scored eight goals from 14 league game so far. He he has featured in 16 matches in all competitions.
