Nigeria’s and Lille OSC of France goal poacher Victor Osimhen faces injury scare after he was stretched off the field in their 2-0 win over Angers on friday.
The results of the medical test of injured Lile striker Victor Osimhen were still being awaited yesterday after he was stretchered off in their 2-0 win over Angers on Friday.
Lille boss Christophe Galtier confirmed that Osimhen suffered muscle injury and the results will revealed the gravity of the injury. The 21-year-old opened the scoring in the 14th-minute, his 12th league strike of the campaign, and any sustained absence makes him a doubt for Lille’s clash with second-placed Olympique Marseille on Sunday, February 16.
“He (Osimhen) has no broken femur,” Galtier told Canal + Sport. “He had to receive treatment off the pitch and I think he has a muscle injury. “The length and severity of his injury will be determined after tests are carried out on Saturday.”
Lille’s win on Friday was their third Ligue 1 success on the spin.
