Osimhen’s Cheekbone Was Badly Damaged -Surgeon

Osimhen’s Cheekbone Was Badly Damaged -Surgeon

Surgeon Gianpaolo Tartaro has revealed that Super Eagles striker, Victor Osimhen’s injury was not a simple cheekbone fracture but also affected several bones of his face.

Recall that the Nigerian international fractured his cheekbone in Napoli’s 3-2 loss toSuper Eagles at the Giuseppe Meaza last Sunday. Osimhen walked off with a swollen cheekbone and black eye after clashing with Milan Skriniar in Inter’s box.

However, after undergoing a successful surgery on Tuesday, Tartaro in an interview with 1 Station Radio as per GIFN, said that it was a difficult operation as the clash damaged his face badly.

“Osimhen injury was not a simple cheekbone fracture but also affected several bones of the face.

“It was not a shock trauma, but compression: the kinetic force generated by the crushing of Osimhen’s face against Skriniar’s created devastating damage.”

“It is still too early to talk about recovery times because the surgery was really complex: the conditions of the player’s face were very bad but I guarantee that the surgery was perfectly successful,” he added.

    God punish dis bastard Milan Skriniar ooo. Shey hin head be iron pillar ni…fuck. He just injure our Boy just like that. Crazy defenders na hin full serie A. Though na game of play sha himself dey try defend hin goal Post ni. Speedy recovery Osimhen. Rest well and don’t even disturb yourself as regards AFCON. Your health is far important than it. If Rhor like make he continue with hin 7 months pregnant Igahlo. Make he no draft Awoniyi, Dessers, Umar and Dennis in on time. When they bundle them out from 2nd round na Stone we go take pursue am comot for the national team with dem Musa, Simon, Akpeyi, Ekong and Balogun

      It wasn’t intentional as they both headed home for the ball. Let’s put everything in prayers.

    God heals the injured, He heals all. You will be fine only put your trust in him. Hope Coach Rohr is searching for a replacement. Hopefully, the forum already has a list of names. Who I be to mention one?

      Our coach is gonna invite Awo and Desser but there is this boy, Ebuehi, I don’t know if his club is averse to releasing him, venezia or something. He has to be in to propel the midfield through wing play. It is well with you Osimhen, we miss you.

    SE problem is not only our forwards but the MD also needs attention. We have a very bad MD and the likes of Iwobi and Ndidi though fresh from injuries, haven’t been able to stamp their authorities.

      @Damian very correct as Rhor no gree find a creative midfielder that can hold, carry the ball forward to pick better positioning striker towards the goal, Maybe na 4 4 2 formation go work for Eagles ooo. Make we play Chukwueze and Ejuke for wings and Ndidi plus Onyeka for Midfield as Etebo sef no dey available and Aribo perfomance against African opponents has not been impressive. Lastly make we play 2 strikers upfront. The creative duty should be handled by Chukwueze and Ejuke plus 1 of the striker to drop to midfield doing all the hold up and link up play. Aina or Sanusi should play 3 bcos Ebuehi is a better right back. Awaziem should be paired with Semi Ajayi at the Central defence.

       
  • I think new Super Eagles coach must recall Dessers and Sadiq Umar as substitutes for Osimhen if he can’t subjoin Afrcon. final in Cameroon on 9 january; also the coach must play with a defensive style as an excellent pattern of playin whitch SE need to chanage the bad SE image whitch appeard on World Cup qualifier versus Central Africa and Cape Verde; the coach must recall like Okechukwu Azibiuke, Alhassan Ibrahim,Fegor Ogude as assistants and substitutes for Wilfred Ndidi;also new coach must play in depth of the midfield in order to possess and control any match versus any team; I recommend to recall Ovie Ejaria and Michael Oliseh as playmakers as assistants for Alex Iwobi and Keleche Iheanchu.

    Hmmmm! Osimehn has never been lucky with injury since he made that step up to Napoli!

    I have never been myself since yesterday it was confirmed that Osimehn will be missing the AFCON. Wished I am GOD just for today, healing you miraculously would have been one of the things on my agenda today…

    I hope the incoming coach will invite and blend together the likes of Awoniyi, Cyriel Dessers, Dennis and Lookman. So that in your absence Nigeria will perform very well during AFCON and make you happy as you recover to bounce back and better like never before…if na d desperation to justifying your worth to the Naples that is causing this incessant injuries then, Victor calm down because the whole world already knows your worth…

    • This is to show you big Five League is not moi moi or Sunday League football!!!. You will see eveidence but look at it in a different way.

      But maybe now Rohr can use your Paul Onuachu, Odion Ighalo and Ahmed Musa as a fearsome foward three LOOOOOOOOOL!!! Wonders shall never end so you are worried that Osimhen is Injured na wa oo

       
  • I am just glad it is not a Leg injury. Speedy Recovery Champ!!

    I wish Victor Osimhen a quick recovery after the successful surgery. It’s just a pity he won’t be part of our team to the AFCON 2021.

    I won’t want to press the panick button since we have capable replacement that are not in the team. Yes, I say they are not in the team. The likes of Dressers and Awoniyi can ably step into the shoe only if Gernot Rhor will give them the opportunity and not banking on Ighalo and Onuachu.

    At the end of this season, if any top Premier league or Spanish club side comes calling for Osimhen, I will advise him to sharply accept the offer. Since Victor got into the Seria A, he hasn’t been lucky with injury.

     
  • _ Osimhen’s Injury Puzzle _

    As Victor Osimhen pow-wowed Inter Milan defender Milan Škriniar in their league encounter over the weekend, it was hoped his injury from the head collision would be negligible despite being visibly swollen before leaving the pitch.

    It has since emerged that Osimhen had significant fractures to his cheek bone and surrounding structures leading to a delicate operation that would take no less than 2 months to convalesce.

    There were mixed messages in several media outlets as some designated 1 month to his recovery (which delighted some Nigeria fans who still harbour hopes of seeing the budding striker feature at the Afcon) while others reported 3 months recovery.

    Whichever it is, Osimhen will need time to recover from the latest mishap and perhaps reflect on his health issues since his celebrated move to Napoli in July 2020 for the now-widely-disputed €70 million.

    After playing just 6 league matches in his first season in Italy, Osimhen suffered a nasty shoulder injury whilst playing for Nigeria in an Afcon qualifier against Sierra Leone in November 2020 (after falling awkwardly on a dodgy turf). He would miss a total of 14 games for Napoli afterwards.

    Disobeying coronavirus protocols in December 2020 whilst on holiday in Nigeria would lead to Osimhen missing at least 2 games immediately after recovering from the shoulder injury because he tested positive for the deadly virus.

    Things would scarcely improve in the new year as he was knocked unconscious having fallen awkwardly after a collision with Atalanta defender Cristian Romero in which he hit his head on the field in February: perhaps an omen of what was to come late in the same year.

    Osimhen would spend a night in hospital and would miss 3 games. In short, injuries and illness robbed the lanky striker no less than 19 games last season – what neither him nor Napoli wanted, more so as he hadn’t particularly hit the ground running.

    For a roughly 1 goal per 3 games striker last season, missing those games meant at least 6 goals that never materialised across all competitions for Osimhen: a telling affirmation of what he missed.

    And this season, sadly I might add, has followed suit. A calf strain in October stole 2 games from him with this latest cheekbone injury set to sideline him for another 15 games across competitions for Napoli.

    For us Super Eagles fans, words fail to convey the disappointment of our most lethal striker missing the Africa Cup of Nations in the new year.

    Chances to add to his collection of goals and accolades for club and country have just gone up in smoke at the time he was starting to hone his skills as a striker.

    I do wish Osimhen speedy recovery.

    Perhaps a psychologist or another trained professional can look into why he has been injured a lot lately. Of all strikers available to the Super Eagles at this time, Osimhen’s recent injury record is the most worrying and puzzling to me.

    Iheanacho missed no game last season or this due to injury; Onuachu has been as fit as fiddle in the past 2 seasons whilst Super Eagles hopeful Sadiq Umar last missed a league game to injuries almost 3 years ago. Even underwhelming Super Eagles striker Terem Moffi has no noteworthy injury entry on his record over the past two seasons.

    Even controversial returnee striker Ighalo is busy lining his pocket with cool oil-money with no injuries in sight.

    In fact, if you compare all the games these players missed due to injuries in the past 2 seasons, they come nowhere near ¼ (a quarter) of Osimhen’s missed games, something I find astonishing.

    I pray for Osimhen: racking up injuries and spending so much time recovering takes a toll on the body and diminishes a striker’s sharpness at least in the short-term.

    I think Osimhen should tone down his exuberance and be selective as to how he channels his energy on the pitch rather than fighting every battle and risking a caution (or an injury).

    He is expected to make a full recovery. Hopefully he will pick up from where he left off.

     
  • The super eagles coaching team are probably cracking their heads on what to do now. Bring in talented youngsters or use experienced players. With Osimhen on the team it hardly matters but without him its a whole new ball game. They need a new dependable striker, can they take a risk on onuachu or experienced ighalo or musa (I dont think so). Its is now we will see how good or how not so good coach Rohr is. Lets see how he manages his players in the absence of his number one striker.

    OSIMENEGOALS will definitely recover well well before AFCON. HE WILL EVEN GET TO PLAY FEW MATCHES FOR NAPOLI BEFORE REPORTING FOR NATIONAL DUTIES. WE ALL SHOULD REFRAIN FROM BELIEVING ALL THOSE LIES/NEGATIVE REPORT ABOUT OSIMENE’S INJURY. ITS NOT LEG OR ANKLE OR KNEEL INJURY BUT FACE. WE WAIT AND SEE HOW THIS ALL PANS OUT. OUR GOD THE JEHOVAH RAPHA, HAVE MERCY ON OSIMENE,FOR THE LIFE THAT IS IN OUR BONES, OUR BLOOD, OUR BEING IS YOU, HENCE YOU ARE OMNIPRESENT OMNIPOTENT N OMNISCIENT. LET YOUR WILL BE DONE IN OSIMENE’S LIFE IN JESUS CHRIST NAME N FOR HIS SAKE. AMEN.
