The Nigeria international returned to Italy earlier this week after testing negative for COVID. He has been forced to the sidelines due to a cheekbone injury, but could soon return to action with a protective mask.
“Victor Osimhen trained alone having completed the necessary protocols at Pineta Grande following a coronavirus infection,” Napoli announced on Tuesday.
“The striker was put through his paces by Professor Tartaro and Doctor Santagata, performed well and will rejoin the core group in a few days, however, he will need to wear a special mask after his recent facial injury.”
On Sunday, Lorenzo Insigne suffered a muscle injury against Sampdoria, and Napoli reveal he has already begun treatment. Insigne will leave the Partenopei at the end of the season and has already signed a contract with Toronto FC.
“Insigne underwent tests following the knock he picked up against Sampdoria and was found to have sustained a minor muscle injury which he has already started treatment for,” Napoli statement read.
