Osimhen still out of Napoli training


Victor Osimhen Centre-Forward of Napoli and Nigeria during the UEFA Champions League match between SCC Napoli and Real Madrid at Stadio Diego Armando Maradona on October 3, 2023 in Naples, Italy.

Napoli started training under new coach Walter Mazzarri today, but last season’s Capocannoniere Victor Osimhen was again ruled out.

The club made the decision to sack Rudi Garcia yesterday and bring back Mazzarri, who had already worked here from 2009 to 2013.

Mazzarri had his first session today at the Castel Volturno ground, but while many are away on international duty, Osimhen was meant to be there after shaking off the injury sustained playing for Nigeria last month.

Instead, the striker was nowhere to be seen, with Napoli announcing he was suffering from flu symptoms.

Napoli hope to have Osimhen back on the field for the showdown with Atalanta in Bergamo on November 25.

The 24-year-old scored six goals in just 10 appearances this season between Serie A and the Champions League, suffering a thigh strain playing in Nigeria’s 2-2 friendly draw with Saudi Arabia on October 13.

He then spent a couple of weeks back in Nigeria to take care of some personal matters, returning to Naples last week, where he sat in the stands for the disappointing games against Union Berlin and Empoli.
