Serie A: Osimhen steps up recovery with grass training, gym session
Victor Osimhen trained on the grass on Friday as he continues to recover from a hamstring injury.
Osimhen sustained the injury while away with Nigeria during the previous international break at the beginning of October.
The Serie A champions started training under new manager, Walter Mazzarri on Wednesday.
Osimhen missed the session due to illness but was back on grass and also spent time in the gym at the club’s Konami Training Center on Friday.
The 24-year-old is pushing to be fit for Napoli’s Serie A clash against Atalanta next weekend.
The striker, who has missed Napoli’s last six games since picking up the injury, is currently the joint-third highest goalscorer in Serie A with six goals from eight appearances.
