Victor Osimhen has been released from the hospital after undergoing face surgery.
On Thursday, Napoli announced this in a statement on their official website.
Osimhen suffered a damaged eye socket and cheekbone after colliding with Inter’s Milan Skriniar in a Serie A match on Sunday, which the Italian champions won.
Before being operated on, he had to be substituted and taken to the hospital for a thorough evaluation.
Following the surgery, Napoli confirmed that Osimhen would be out for three months, ruling him out of next year’s African Football Cup Of Nations (AFCON) in Cameroon.
And giving update on Osimhen after the surgery, Napoli wrote:”Victor Osimhen was discharged from the Ruesch clinic this morning and returned home where he will have a rest period of at least 10/15 days.
“The SSCN and Dr. Raffaele Canonico thank Inter and in particular the CEO Giuseppe Marotta and Dr. Piero Volpi, as well as the staff of the Niguarda of Milan, for the precious and immediate collaboration on the occasion of the injury of the blue striker.”
Osimhen is Napoli’s leading scorer this season with nine goals in 14 appearances in all competitions.
