Napoli striker Victor Osimhen rejoined his teammates on Monday night after he lost consciousness in the final minute of Sunday’s Serie A clash against Atalanta. Osimhen hit his head on the turf after a Cristian Romero challenge during Napoli’s 4-2 defeat at the Gewiss Stadium in Bergamo, lost consciousness and was rushed to the hospital.
Accompanied by Napoli’s doctor, the striker was rushed to Bergamo’s Papa Giovanni Hospital, where he spent the night under observation until Monday night, when he was cleared after series of test. The Partenopei, while giving updates on their injured players, said Osimhen was fine and had rejoined the team.
Meanwhile, Napoli also revealed that Dries Mertens, who returned from therapy in Belgium, could return to training this week.
