Osimhen to return against Ajax Oct 4


According to Italian publication, Tuttonapoli, Serie A league leaders, Napoli, have been handed a major boost after reports emerged that Nigeria international, Victor Osimhen, would be available for the club’s next UEFA Champions League game against Ajax on Oct 4.

The Super Eagles striker sustained a hamstring injury in Napoli’s 4-1 battering of Liverpool in their Group A opening game of the Champions League Sept 7, before he was replaced just four minutes to the end of the first 45 minutes

The initial report suggested that the 23-year-old would be out for three weeks.

However, the former Lille forward has missed Napoli’s last three games before the international break and automatically has been ruled out of Nigeria’s international friendly against Algeria Sept 27.

In the latest report by Tuttonapoli on Tuesday, Osimhen is likely to return in time for Luciano Spalletti’s side’s encounter against the Dutch champions.
