Napoli Boss leaves Osimhen out of UCL squad to face Ajax


Victor Osimhen’s road to recovery from a muscle injury is on track, but the player will not be forced back into action by Napoli boss Luciano Spalletti.

Spalletti left out the 23 year-old Forward from the travelling squad to Amsterdam, where Napoli will battle Ajax in a matchday three UEFA Champions League fixture, Tuesday.

Osimhen’s last outing for Napoli was in the UCL, at the Diego Armando Maradona Stadium against Liverpool.

According to the club’s Doctor, Osimhen isn’t expected to be back in competitive action earlier than October 9 – in the Serie A.

Meanwhile, the Forward has been getting involved in training and worked in the gym at the Club’s SSCN Konami Training Center.

Currently, Napoli sit on top of the group; ahead of Liverpool, Ajax and Rangers, with six points and victory on Tuesday will take them one step closer to securing a second round ticket.
