Napoli captain, Giovanni Di Lorenzo, insists that the team can perform well against AC Milan without the presence of Victor Osimhen.
Napoli President Aurelio De Laurents has ruled out Victor Osimhen from their Champions League trip to AC Milan on Wednesday. “Victor is not in a position to play, unfortunately,” De Laurentiis
Osimhen, who has made five appearances for Napoli in the Champions League this season with four goals, is currently suffering from a muscle injury he sustained while on international duty with Nigeria in March.
Napoli will be facing AC Milan tonight in the first leg of their UEFA Champions League quarter-final clash.
The Serie A leaders will be without their top scorer, Osimhen in the game.
Napoli were battered 4-0 by AC Milan in a league match last month with Osimhen missing in action.
“We know that Osimhen is a great player and he is very important for us, but we don’t depend only on one player. We have and have full confidence in the available players.”
“So we are calm from this point of view. I repeat Osimhen is important for us, but he won’t be there in this match, and therefore, we will face them with the players we have,” Di Lorenzo was quoted by Tutto Napoli.
