Napoli Fear Cheek Fracture For Osimhen


Napoli are bracing themselves for potentially bad news after Victor Osimhen appeared to fracture his cheekbone during a clash of heads with Inter defender Milan Skriniar.

The Nigeria international was visibly dazed and his face was badly swollen as he staggered off the pitch at the Stadio Giuseppe Meazza on Sunday evening.

It was an accidental clash of heads as they both went for the ball, but Osimhen was caught on the cheekbone by the back of Skriniar’s head and came off much worse.

He looked visibly dazed, his eye and cheek were very swollen within minutes of the clash, all suggesting a possible fracture.

The 21-year-old has been taken to the San Raffaele Hospital for tests after he was diagnosed with head trauma.

It’s bad news for Napoli, as Osimhen is comfortably their top scorer this season with nine goals in 13 appearances between Serie A and the Europa League.

He is also not new to head injuries, as last term he was knocked unconscious when landing awkwardly, hitting the back of his head on the turf.

Because of that, and a loss of memory, Osimhen was out for several weeks due to concussion protocols.
