AFCON impossible for Osimhen - Italian doctor who operated on the striker insists

The Italian surgeon who operated on Victor Osimhen’s facial accidents has insisted that the striker will not be accessible for the African Cup of Nations (AFCON) holding in Cameroon in January. 

 

Osimhen, 22, sustained fractures to his cheekbone and eye socket throughout Sunday’s 3-2 defeat by Inter Milan after clashing heads with defender Milan Skriniar. 

 

Gianpaolo Tartaro, a plastic, and aesthetic surgeon led the group of specialists who efficiently operated on Osimhen on Monday.

Tartaro revealed it could be troublesome for the Tremendous Eagles star to take part within the match as he wouldn’t practice for not less than two months.

 

“An actual coaching, with contact, (Osimhen) won’t be able to do it for eight to 9 weeks,” Tartaro advised Corriere dello Sport, as per TuttoNapoli.

 

“It’s unimaginable to assume that he’ll go to the African Cup: his physique and his face got here out distorted by the impression.”
