Napoli Striker Victor Osimhen Works Out In The Gym And Pitch Pre-RomaPublished: November 27, 2020
Victor Osimhen is still rated as doubtful for Napoli's blockbuster clash against AS Roma in the Italian Serie A on Sunday, November 29.
The summer signing from Lille is still recovering from an injury - a dislocated shoulder - suffered while on international duty with the Super Eagles exactly two weeks ago.
According to the training report published by Napoli's official website on Friday, Osimhen worked out in the gym and trained on the pitch during the training session on Friday morning.
He was not named in Napoli's matchday squad for their Europa League clash with Rijeka on Thursday and is facing a race against the clock to be passed fit to face Roma.
Though Napoli have not put a time frame on his recovery, Super Eagles coach Gernot Rohr disclosed on November 14 his number 9 could be out of action for between two to three weeks.
In Osimhen's absence, manager Gennaro Gattuso selected Dries Mertens to lead the attack in the loss to AC Milan last weekend while Andrea Petagna played the role of a number nine in the victory over Rijeka yesterday.
