The surgeon handling Victor Osimhen’s cheekbone and eye socket fracture injury has provided more update on the player’s condition after his face injury during Serie A game against Inter Milan last weekend.
The Super Eagles striker suffered a horrific facial injury during Napoli’s 3-2 defeat to Inter, and his surgeon revealed just how complex the player’s issue was.
His doctor, Gianpaolo Tartaro said the player’s eye came out of the socket because of the destruction of the malar bone.
He warned that the Nigerian must be careful while suggesting he may not play in the upcoming African Cup of Nations in Cameroon because he has to go through another surgery.
“The eye came out of its socket. It is not simple at all, in fact it is very delicate due to the crushing of the socket, due to the curving of the malar bone [which is] practically destroyed.
We have to now look at a special mask for his case,” Tartaro said in an interview with Il Corriere dello Sport.
Osimhen fractured a cheekbone and eye socket as a result of the clash with Inter defender Milan Skriniar.
