Nigeria striker Victor Osimhen has tested positive for coronavirus.
Osimhen’s Serie A club Napoli confirmed this on his return to Italy.
A released statement read, “Napoli can confirm that Victor Osimhen has tested positive for COVID-19 following his return to Italy,”
It further stated that “Osimhen is currently asymptomatic and has not come into contact with the rest of the squad.”
The positive test could rule him out of the Italian Super Cup against Juventus on January 20 in Reggio Emilia.
You would recall that Osimhen has also been nursing a shoulder injury since the dramatic 4-4 draw with Sierra Leone in November during an African Nation’s Cup qualifying match.
