Victor Osimhen will not play for three months

The disastrous event took place during the Inter-Napoli hit on Sunday. The Italian champions won the game 3-2, thus interrupting the visitors with an impressive series of 12 matches unbeaten.

The Naples crew, however, have another cause for concern. Victor Osimhen, the best forward of the season, suffered a serious facial injury after a collision in an air duel with Milan Szkriniaar. The footballer immediately left the field of play and was transported to the clinic.

In a hospital in Milan, the 22-year-old had a massive trauma to the left side of his face. There were multiple fractures of the zygomatic bone, temporal bone and eye socket. Worse still – with displacement.

According to “Corriere dello Sport”, the sniper underwent an operation in the capital of Lombardy on Tuesday. The facial reconstruction took 3.5 hours. Six titanium plates and 18 screws were used for this.

Shortly after the game against Inter, it was predicted that Osimhen would be sidelined for a month. Now it is known that his break with the pitch will take at least 90 days.

This means that the Napoli player will not participate in the African Cup of Nations, which will start on January 9 in Cameroon.

This season, Piotr Zieliński’s club mate played 14 matches for Napoli. He scored nine goals in them and made two assists. In his absence, the coach Luciano Spalletti will probably put someone from the Dries Mertens duo – Andrea Petagna.
