Napoli will feel the absence of Osimhen – Rudi Garcia

Napoli coach, Rudi Garcia, has admitted that Victor Osimhen will be sorely missed as the Partenopei prepares for a busy fixture schedule this month.

“We need all our players fit and ready to play and Osimhen out is a big loss for the team,” Garcia told La Gazzetta dello Sport.

“He is an important player to the team and we must find a solution in his absence.”

The 24-year-old will miss Napoli’s upcoming matches against Hellas Verona, Union Berlin and AC Milan after he suffered a medium-grade lesion of the biceps femoris in his right thigh while away on international duty with Nigeria.

Despite having other options in attack, Garcia believes the absence of his leading goal scorer may affect his team’s chances of returning to winning ways.

The Serie A champions who have won only four league games this season, suffered consecutive defeats to Real Madrid and Fiorentina before the international break – a poor run which has put Garcia under pressure.

Osimhen has scored a total of 65 goals and 15 assists in 111 games in the Napoli shirt.
