 'He Does 100 Percent Of The Sessions' - Lille Coach Assures Osimhen Is Fit Pre-Marseille
Victor Osimhen is in contention to be included in Lille's starting line-up against Marseille on Sunday after suffering an injury scare in the closing minutes of the 2-0 win at Angers SCO.

Lille coach Christophe Galtier revealed at Friday's pre-match press conference that it was a minor case of cramps and the Nigeria international is training normally with the rest of his teammates.

"Victor trains normally, he does 100% of the sessions. He ended up with a cramp (in Angers)," Galtier explained to reporters.

"As he is a young player, he is still discovering his body. He had felt pain a few minutes before and we had decided to replace him.

"And on his last action, he got down on the ground feeling sharp pain, but it was just a cramp. Now he knows what it is."

A summer signing from Sporting Charleroi, Osimhen is Lille's top scorer in all competitions with 17 goals, including 12 in the Ligue 1.
