Osimhen Injury Boost For Napoli Ahead Ajax UCL Game


New dad Victor Osimhen trained with the rest of the Napoli team Monday.

Osimhen has been forced to the sidelines for more than a month but seems ready to be back for the Partenopei.

The Nigeria international trained with the rest of the team on Monday, as Napoli confirmed through an official statement.

“After the 4-1 win away to Cremonese on Sunday, the Napoli first-team squad returned to training at the SSC Konami Training Centre on Monday to begin preparations for the Champions League clash with Ajax on Wednesday,” Napoli’s statement read.

“Activation work in the gym was the first task of the day. The squad was then split in two, with those who started on Sunday at the Stadio Zini undergoing recovery work. The other members of the squad did strength work and possession-based drills and played in a small-sided match.

“Victor Osimhen was in full training, while Amir Rahmani underwent physio ahead of medical tests on Tuesday.”

Osimhen could take part in Wednesday’s Champions League fixture against Ajax in the Champions League.
