Osimhen Stable, Maybe Out for weeks
Super Eagles striker, Victor Osimhen is in good condition following Tuesday’s health scare during a match but may face weeks on the sideline, Bestchoicesports.com.ng understands.
Osimhen had put Lille ahead in the 19th minute after he was set up by Jonathan Ikone but moments later, was rushed to the hospital after complaining of chest pain.
His replacement, Loic Remy scored two more goals to hand Les Dogues a 3-0 win against AS Monaco at the Stade Louis II and a place in the quarter-final of the Coupe de la Ligue.
After the game, Lille manager Christophe Galtier allayed fears that Osimhen may face a lengthy spell on the sidelines following the incident.
“Victor Osimhen experienced dizziness and then pain. He was quickly rushed to the hospital. We just got news, everything is back to normal. We just talked to him, he’s fine,” Galtier told reporters after the game.
Osimhen has scored 12 goals across all competitions since his arrival from Belgian club Sporting Charleroi this summer.
He is expected to be fit for Saturday’s Ligue 1 clash against Monaco.
