Osimhen could face AC Milan next week – Spalletti gives injury update

Napoli manager, Luciano Spalletti has revealed Victor Osimhen could return to face AC Milan in the UEFA Champions League next month.

The talismanic forward missed last weekend’s 4-0 home defeat to holders AC Milan as a result of injury.

The 24-year-old has already been ruled out of Friday’s (today) Serie A away clash against Leece as he continues treatment on the injury.

Spalletti has however stated that Osimhen is in line to face AC Milan in the first leg of the Champions League quarter-final tie.

“Tomorrow there is no chance, we go to the following week with the work schedule.

“For the following matches there are many possibilities from a programming point of view, but you have to wait for the practical development of the work,” Spalletti told a press conference.

Osimhen has scored 21 goals in 23 league appearances for Napoli this season.
