Nigeria’s Victor Osimhen is facing an extended spell on the sidelines, which could hinder Napoli’s chances in the UEFA Champions League this season.

Although Napoli has a significant lead in the Serie A standings, they face AC Milan in the quarter-finals of the UEFA Champions League.

Osimhen’s muscle injury, which he picked up while playing for Nigeria, is likely to prevent him from participating in both matches against AC Milan, as well as their upcoming game against Lecce.

Although the initial hope was for him to return for the match against AC Milan in two weeks, a recent Twitter post implies that he may be absent for the rest of the season, depending on how swiftly he recovers.

” Sorry guys, I will be back stronger than ever in a month or two. #Forzanapolisempre #Godisgreat …”, he posted on Twitter.

Despite his message of assurance that he will come back stronger, his deletion of the post has raised questions about his situation.
