Serie A: Why Napoli striker, Osimhen still wears protective mask

Osimhen’s agent admits Super Eagles striker could leave Napoli

Roberto Ruggiero, a Napoli doctor, has revealed why striker Victor Osimhen is still wearing a protective mask over a year after recovering from a head injury.

On November 22, 2021, the Super Eagles forward suffered an eye socket injury during a Serie A match against Inter.

Because of the facial injury, Osimhen had to undergo surgery and was sidelined for three months.

Osimhem returned to the battlefield on January 17, 2022, wearing a protective face mask.

“Osimhen is perfectly healed, he’s still wearing the protective mask because it gives him a sense of security, but he’s healed,” Ruggiero told Radio Marte late last season.

“He has his own balance and wants to wear it. Hopefully this mask will be enough until he feels safe and takes it off. Not before then. I have still seen for a check, but as soon as he returns, we will have intense work to do.”

Despite the injury, Osimhen ended up making 32 appearances overall for Napoli in 2021-22, scoring 18 goals in all competitions.
