Victor Osimhen’s Absence from Training Leaves Napoli Sweating on His Availability for AC Milan Clash


Victor Osimhen was absent from Napoli’s training on Monday, as the squad prepared for the upcoming Champions League quarter-final match against AC Milan on Wednesday.

Osimhen’s absence is due to the muscle injury he sustained while on international duty with his home country last month.

The tear in his adductor muscle has kept him from rejoining his teammates.

He has not been available for Napoli’s last two fixtures, AC Milan and Lecce, since the international break ended.

It had been initially hoped that the Forward will make it back in time to face AC Milan at the San Siro on Wednesday, but, his recovery was not quite what they had hoped for.

According to popular Italian journalist Gianluca Di Marzio, Osimhen was instead seen working on his own on the pitch and then heading into the gym.

The 24-year-old will undergo medical tests on Tuesday to see if he can participate in the contest.
