Osimhen sustained a muscle injury during a UEFA Champions League home game against Liverpool on matchday one of the competition.

Raffaele said Osimhen would not be able to play in the game against Torino on October 1 and the Champions League fixture against Ajax, three days after.

“Pace is one of his peculiar characteristics. We are talking of an athlete whose top speed sprint is 34/35 km/h. To reach that and to achieve specific standards he must be well trained.”

“In general, the recovery time for these sorts of injuries is five weeks, so the week of the Cremonese clash (October 9) is crucial,” The Napoli doctor said.
