Super Eagles forward Victor Osimhen continued his road to recovery following a shoulder injury as he hit the gym on Wednesday after treatment, according to SportingLife.
The former Lille star returned to Naples with a shoulder injury after representing Nigeria in the 2021 Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) qualifier against Sierra Leone.
Napoli missed Osimhen last Sunday as they suffered a 3-1 defeat against a Zlatan Ibrahimovic inspired AC Milan at the Stadio San Paolo and will face Rijeka on Thursday in the Match-Day 4 of the Europa League without the Nigerian who joined from Ligue 1 for a club-record fee.
According to the club’s official website ahead of Napoli’s Europa League clash: “The squad kicked things off with an initial warm-up before heading out to Pitch 1, where the players focused on passing drills and possession exercises. The session was brought to a close with a mini-match.
“Victor Osimhen had treatment and trained in the gym and outside, while David Ospina had a gym session.”
Napoli are currently second in Group F of the Europa League with six points while Rijeka are bottom with no points registered so far.
