Nigerian Striker Victor Osimhen Diagnosed With Head Trauma

 

Napoli and Nigeria’s Victor Osimhen has been diagnosed with a head trauma after the Napoli striker was knocked unconscious in the game against Atalanta.

The player who’s team was trailing away from home was unconscious for a while towards the end of the game after an aerial challenge.

The Nigeria international fell awkwardly in the final minute of the 4-2 defeat following a collision with Cristian Romero and hit the back of his head on the turf.

He was drifting in and out of consciousness, so was rushed to the ambulance at the side of the pitch and taken to the local hospital in Bergamo for tests.

A Napoli statement confirms Osimhen has been diagnosed with head trauma, but the other tests all came back clear.

Fortunately, there do not seem to be any other red flags from the tests he had at the Papa Giovanni XXIII hospital in Bergamo.

He will remain in Bergamo overnight under observation before he is released to join his Napoli teammates.

Osimhen has had numerous health problems since joining Napoli, as he dislocated his shoulder on international duty in November and contracted COVID-19 over the Christmas break.
