Napoli coach, Luciano Spalletti has disclosed that Victor Osimhen will be available for Napoli’s Champions League clash with Milan next week.
Spalletti affirmed the striker’s return after he missed Napoli’s first-leg quarter-final match in which the Partenopei were defeated 1-0 on Wednesday at San Siro.
In the match, it was so obvious that Osimhen who got an adductors injury while on international duty with Nigeria was really missing as Milan’s Ismael Bennacer’s made first-half finish which was the only goal of the match.
While reacting to the situation, Spalletti said Osimhen will feature 100 per cent against the Rossoneri next week, stressing that the 24-year-old is fit for the second leg.
He said, “Victor Osimhen will 100 per cent be available for the return leg at (Stadio Diego Armando Maradona) on Tuesday, he will be there.”
“Keeping out of the first leg and not risking him on Saturday (against Verona) will probably allow us to complete the work built by the doctors, then anything can happen.”
The talented forward at the moment leads the Serie A scoring charts with 21 goals this season and has played a vital role in the club’s race for the Scudetto.
