Napoli medics have reportedly alleged that Nigerian doctors aggravated Victor Osimhen’s shoulder injury while trying to help him ease off pains.
The Nigerian striker suffered a setback during Super Eagles’ disappointing AFCON qualifiers against Sierra Leone last month in Benin which ended in a 4-4 draw.
The 21-year-old was removed in the 78th minute with Paul Onuachu taking his place for the remainder of the game having already registered his name on the scores sheet earlier in the first half.
According to Football Italia, the medical team of the Nigerian national squad made attempts to put it back into place on the field after which he returned to Italy to see a specialist consultation.
The publication quoting Tuttosport claims that the shoulder dislocation has fully recovered, but Osimhen still can’t lift his arm properly.
Well, Osmihen has now reacted to the report, dispelling it as false.
He took to his Twitter page to give a very short and direct response. “Not true tho,” the former Lille forward wrote.
Not true tho
