Victor Osimhen could miss the start of the Serie A season after Napoli confirmed that the Nigerian forward has now suffered a knock to his ankle, Reelradio.com.ng reports.
It was a sight that a lot of Super Eagles, Napoli and football supporters in general did not want to see as a video emerged on Tuesday afternoon of the forward writhing in pain and clutching his ankle.
“Victor Osimhen left training early due to a sprain to his right ankle.” This was the statement made by the club on their official website.
Since the injury is recent, the club will have to access the injury and figure out how severe it is and how long he will be out for.
Given Osimhen’s injury record, the club as well as the teams who want to acquire his services will hope he is not out for too long.
