Rudi Garcia: Nigeria’s Victor Osimhen making gradual progress after injury

Napoli manager Rudi Garcia has disclosed that Nigeria’s Victor Osimhen is gradually walking his way to fitness following his recent injury.

Osimhen has not been wearing the shirt of the Serie A defending champions since he sustained a thigh injury on international duty last month.

The number-eight best player in the world is currently away in Nigeria as he recovers from the injury.

The coach of the Italian side disclosed that Osimhen will return to Naples next week.

“He (Osimhen) made an agreement with the club, I spoke to him through messages, the doctors assure me that he is following the program, everything is fine, and he will be with us next week,” the gaffer was quoted by Football Italia

“It’s not that I don’t care, but whether it’s Osimhen or Russo, injured together, cannot play and therefore I focus on who can play.”
