Super Eagles striker Victor Osimhen has recently returned to training on the pitch, but is still carrying out personalised sessions as he fights to return to action immediately after the international break.
It was gathered from recent updates that, Osimhen is pushing to be fit enough to return to action for Mazzarri’s first game away against Atalanta next weekend.
Osimhen has been out of action for over a month now, having picked up an injury to his hamstring while away with Nigeria during the previous international break at the beginning of October.
The 2022-23 capocannoniere has missed six matches across Serie A and the Champions League in the weeks since then.
Osimhen was unable to take part in Walter Mazzarri’s first training session in charge of the Partenopei on Wednesday due to illness, but has since begun to step up his recovery process both on the pitch and in the gym.
According to recent updates, Osimhen is pushing to be fit enough to return to action for Mazzarri’s first game away against Atalanta next weekend.
Despite missing a month of action, Osimhen is still the joint-third highest goalscorer in Serie A this season, with six from eight appearances in the league so far.
