Osita Okolo, manager to talented Super Eagles striker, Victor Osimhen, has stated that Osimhen has been given ample time to recover from his injury so he can come back stronger.

Osimhen's injury ruled him out of the 2021 Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) billed for Cameroon in January.

He had on Tuesday, November 23, 2021, undergone surgery on his cheekbone and eye socket after a head-on collision with Inter Milan player during last Sunday’s Serie A-game.

“Africa Cup? Victor’s priority is to be first of all well, the rest matters little now.

“He was playing very well and had conquered everyone. This injury stopped Osimhen but he wants to come back stronger than before.

“Recovery times? We have to wait for what the doctors say. They talked about three months, maybe it becomes two but we don’t know. It is a very complicated injury that requires caution, step by step we will see the boy’s answers,” Okolo said.
