Napoli are expecting Victor Osimhen to return to action in January 2021 as he continues his rehabilitation process, according to the club’s sporting director Cristiano Giuntoli.
Osimhen dislocated his shoulder last month while in action for Nigeria in an Africa Cup Of Nations qualifying fixture against Sierra Leone, which consequently made him miss their last nine matches across all competitions.
When asked about the condition of the Nigerian forward, Giuntoli told Sky Italia via Sos Fanta that he is still not well, and the club are waiting for him at the beginning of 2021.
He says he does not know when he will come back
In Osimhen’s absence, Napoli has won just four of their nine matches in all competitions, and they are ranked fifth on the Serie a table with 23 points from 13 matches. Earlier this month, the striker dismissed reports that Nigerian doctors worsened his injury before he left the west African country for treatment at his club base in Naples.
