The energetic attacker sustained the injury while representing the country in an international friendly game against Saudi Arabia in Portugal.

According to the Italian football news outlet Corriere dello Sport, Osimhen travelled with the team to Germany for the UEFA Champions League but didn’t stay with the team instead he moved to Nigeria for personal reasons.

“Victor Osimhen was traveling to Frankfurt but not to stay in Germany and obviously not to follow the team to Berlin as some had suspected after the images among the fans in Capodichino.

The striker had flown to Frankfurt on Tuesday but to make a stop in Nigeria for personal reasons.

“The attacker had already spoken about it with De Laurentiis. The trip was therefore planned,” the publication said.
