Napoli’s squad for their Serie A match against Cremonese on Sunday does not include Super Eagles forward Victor Osimhen.
Osimhen has been out since suffering a hamstring injury in Napoli’s 4-1 win against Liverpool on September 7th. The 23-year-old Super hitman has missed the Partenopeans’ past five games due to injury.
Osimhen, on the other hand, has not been missed as Napoli has been blazing on all cylinders, with Giacomo Raspadori and Giovanni Simeone in top form.
In Napoli’s last five games, the tandem has scored eight goals.
Osimhen was anticipated to return to Napoli’s bench on Sunday. Spalletti, on the other hand, is not ready to have his star attacker yet, as the Nigerian striker was left out of the team.
To avoid a relapse, the Partenopeans’ manager wants Osimhen to be totally healthy before returning to play.
“We can’t take any chances with Victor Osimhen,” Spalletti remarked at the pre-match press conference.
“We want him back, but he has to be in great shape.” He requires more time spent practicing at a high intensity.”
Napoli is currently leading Serie A. In fact, they’ve been on fire this season, handing out crushing defeats to everyone.
The Partenopeans are anticipated to win against struggling Cremonese, who are now 19th in the table. Dessers and his teammates, on the other hand, cannot be ruled out.
