Osimhen Set to Respect Timetable to Return from Injury

Victor Osimhen made his return to the Castelvolturno training center on Thursday, undergoing therapies and working in the gym while nursing a thigh strain. The results of the most recent tests were encouraging. The lesion is improving as expected. He should be ready for November 25th’s match versus Atalanta, La Gazzetta dello Sport relays (via Virgilio).

The striker will take it slow for a few more days. He’ll resume training on grass in the week leading up to the encounter. As natural, he hasn’t been called up by Nigeria for the upcoming international break.

The positive turn of events is unlikely to impact and speed up the thorny negotiation to extend his contract. However, the stalemate hasn’t influenced his performances on the pitch, as Osimhen compartmentalizes things well.

He got angry about the TikTok affair, as the club never formally apologized, while he hasn’t interfered with the work of his agent Roberto Calenda. He and the Partenopei remain on polar terms on the wages and the amount of the release clause, the outlet adds.

Our Take on Osimhen

Giacomo Raspadori has been going strong, and that’ll be a big help during AFCON and won’t force them to sign a new center-forward. Still, it’s clear that they need his brute force in cagey matches like the recent Union Berlin one and others that they didn’t put away despite pulling the strings.
