The chances of Napoli winning the title this season may be in jeopardy following the injury of Victor Osimhen, ex-internationals have revealed.

Napoli last won the Italian League title 30 years ago.

The Nigerian striker sustained multiple fractures in an aerial clash with Inter Milan’s defender, Milan Skriniar, last Sunday in a Serie A clash.

He however underwent facial reconstruction after suffering multiple fractures to the cheekbone and orbital bone.

The initial rehabilitation is said to be for at least 90 days, ruling Osimhen out of the 2021 Africa Cup of Nations which kicks off on January 9 till February 6 in Cameroon.

Statistics however show that Napoli have not lost a Serie A league game this season with Osimhen until last Sunday’s 3-2 loss against Inter Milan where he was replaced after 52 minutes due to the injury.

Prior to the game against Inter Milan which  theylost 3-2, the Partenopei with Osimhen in the team have recorded eight wins and two draws with the Nigerian scoring five of Napoli’s 23 goals so far this term and his former U-17 coach Emmanuel Amuneke says playing three months without the 22-year-old will be a terrible blow to their chances.

“He’s Napoli’s top marksman and playing without him for three months will obviously be a big miss to the team’s chances winning the Scudetto,” Amuneke told PUNCH Sports Extra.

“But the most important thing now is for him to recover well. It was a nasty injury but he is a strong boy and well be back better.”

Italian agent Ayo Makinwa also added, “It is going to be difficult sincerely considering the form he is now at the moment but I think Luciano Spalletti will adopt another plan which will make them play well.

“They have other players who could try to fill the void.”
