Osimhen returns to training: 'He can be called up'

Napoli forward Victor Osimhen returned to train with the group today, as the Partenopei prepare for the match against Bologna on Sunday.

The Azzurri confirmed the Nigerian striker, who suffered a head injury in the 4-2 defeat to Atalanta, has returned to full training with the rest of his teammates today.

Neurosurgeon Alfredo Bucciero confirmed the former LOSC Lille forward can be called up for this weekend’s match.

“He can be called up,” Bucciero told Radio Punto Nuovo. “[Coach Gennaro] Gattuso and [doctor Raffaele] Canonico must decide.

“As far as I’m concerned, from a clinical point of view, there are no problems. I asked him to dedicate a goal to me.”

Napoli announced Hirving Lozano and Andrea Petagna continued the personalised work today.
