Victor Osimhen could miss Liverpool due to injury

Napoli sporting director Cristiano Giuntoli has downplayed the injury concern of Victor Osimhen.

The Super Eagles forward picked up a knock as Napoli beat Lazio 2-1 on Saturday, September, 3.

He missed training the team training but trained alone as Napoli prepare to take on Liverpool in their Champions League match on Wednesday.

Giuntoli has revealed that Osimhen only has a small discomfort and no injury.

There is still no guarantee that the former Lille lad will feature in the Liverpool tie, as Napoli are looking to manage the situation so as not to aggravate the knock, according to

Speaking in an interview with Kiss Kiss Napoli (via Tutto Napoli), Giuntoli said, “He (Osimhen) has a little discomfort in the adductor, there is no injury, it is a fatigue that he must manage together with the doctor and decide a few hours of the game with Liverpool if it is appropriate to risk or not.”

Osimhen was instrumental, scoring 14 goals as the Neapolitans finished third in Serie A last term, qualifying for this season’s Champions League.

This will be his first feature in Europe’s premier club competition since leaving Lille two years ago.
