Super Eagles and Napoli striker, Victor Osimhen has returned to training following the injury he suffered in the Serie A game against Inter Milan
The 22-year-old was told he will not be able to return to training this year which will automatically rule him out of the African Cup of Nations which will be hosted in Cameroon.
According to reports from the Daily Mail, the club’s doctor, Gianpolo Tartaro, gave more details about the incident which has ruled out the 22-year-old for three months.
He had a series of fractures. It was as if his head had ended up under a press. The eye came out of its socket. It is not simple at all, in fact it is very delicate due to the crushing of the socket, due to the curving of the malar bone which is practically destroyed.
The various fractures, not only the cheekbone, obviously borough complications and six plates and 18 screws, had to be inserted. It took three hours; we had to cut him in three places on his face.
We have to now look at a special mask for his case. It is not something banal, there is a nerve there, it is all very difficult. We will see how his situation evolves.
The return of the forward man is a big boost for Napoli and Nigeria as he is expected to be part of the 23 man list that will represent the West African country at the competition.
