Victor Osimhen has gotten back to training with his team, Napoli after the facial injury he suffered in their clash against Inter Milan last November.

The 23-year-old fractured his left cheekbone and orbit in the game and had to undergo a difficult but successful surgery.

After the surgery, it was confirmed that the player would be out for three months.

However, Osimhen returned to individual training just two weeks later, which raised the hope of Nigerian fans on his participation in the Africa Cup of Nations.

But Osimhen dashed the hopes of many Nigerians after pulling out of the squad due to the injury and coronavirus he contracted when he visited Nigeria in December.

He later returned to Naples after testing negative for the virus and took part in the team training for the first time since he suffered the injury.

Claudio Russo of CalacioNapoli24 disclosed that Osimhen took part in the team’s session on Wednesday after his individual training.
