NAPOLI sporting director, Cristiano Guintoli has downplayed injury concerns surrounding Victor Osimhen ahead of the side’s UEFA Champions League clash against Liverpool.
There were fears Osimhen could miss out on the game after the Naples club issued a statement on their website on Monday that the Nigeria international picked up a minor injury in last Saturday’s away win at Lazio.
Osimhen, according to the statement, trained separately from his teammates.
But Guintoli has stated that the striker is expected to be fit for the game.
“He (Osimhen) has a little discomfort in the adductor, there is no injury, it is a fatigue that he must manage together with the doctor and decide a few hours of the game with Liverpool if it is appropriate to risk or not,” Guintoli told Kiss Kiss Napoli via Tutto Napoli.
Osimhen has scored two goals in five league appearances for the Partenopei this season.
The Liverpool encounter will hold at the Diego Armando Maradona Stadium on Wednesday.
