Ahead of Napoli’s league game against Sasuolo this Wednesday, Nigeria international, Victor Osimhen, has been dropped from manager, Gennaro Gattuso’s squad following the release of the team’s line-up.
The Serie A clash will take place at the Mapei Stadium later today.
A fortnight ago, Osimhen had suffered a head injury in the closing minutes of Napoli’s loss to Atalanta before resuming light training last Saturday.
According to Corriere del Mezzogiorno, the Super Eagles striker was omitted because the medical tests carried out on him after the head injury in Bergamo showed some anomalies which needed time to be corrected.
Reports say the 22-year-old who will continue to train separately until Friday without heading the ball, will undergo another test to determine if he will be available for selection for the weekend clash against Bologna.
