Osimhen Remains Absent from Napoli Training

Osimhen’s Injury Casts Doubt on Availability for Napoli’s Match Against Lecce

Victor Osimhen remains sidelined with injury, raising concerns about his participation in Napoli’s upcoming clash against Leece.

The Nigerian forward missed training on Monday, extending his absence since sustaining an injury during Napoli’s home defeat to Bologna two weeks ago.

Osimhen also sat out the Partenopei’s recent match against Fiorentina. Napoli’s official website reported that he only participated in gym work at the training center on Monday. 

This casts doubt on his availability for the upcoming game against Leece. While the information doesn’t mention the severity of the injury, it suggests Osimhen might miss the match.

The news also raises questions about his participation in Nigeria’s upcoming 2026 World Cup qualifiers against South Africa and Benin Republic, scheduled for June 7th and 10th respectively.
