The Super Eagles striker sustained an injury in Napoli’s Champions League destruction of Liverpool, but he may be back in action in less than a month
Super Eagles striker Victor Osimhen could be in coach Luciano Spalletti’s starting XI when Napoli take on Cremonese on the 9th of October.
Osimhen was taken off in the 41st minute after he sustained a hamstring injury in Napoli’s 4-1 mauling of Liverpool on the 7th of September.
The injury effectively ruled him out of Napoli’s last three games before the international break. It also put him out of contention for a place in Jose Peseiro’s squad for the Super Eagles’ international friendly game against Algeria on the 27th of September.
According to a report by Tutto Napoli, the masked Super Eagles marksman could be available for Napoli’s Champions League clash against Ajax, albeit he could get just a few minutes.
However, he would be ready for full action when the Partenopeans travel to Cremonese on the 9th of October.
It would be an interesting game because Osimhen would be up against compatriots Cyriel Dessers, David Okereke, and Emmanuel Aiwu.
The Grigiorossi are yet to win a game this season, and Osimhen would be smacking his lips at the prospect of facing the worst defensive side in the Serie A.
