Osimhen positive after second COVID-19 test

Written by on January 12, 2021

Napoli have confirmed that record-signing Victor Osimhen remains positive for COVID-19 after a fresh coronavirus test was conducted on him on Monday.

The Italian club stated this on their Twitter handle.

Osimhen first tested positive for COVID-19 upon return to Naples on New Year’s Day, after spending time in Nigeria, where he attended a birthday party and breached COVID-19 protocols.

Videos showed the forward dancing without a facemask, while his guests also broke COVID-19 protocols, which angered Napoli manager Gennaro Gattuso and the club’s fans.

However, after 10 days in isolation, Napoli announced the player was still positive.

The Italian club wrote on their Twitter handle, “The molecular nasopharyngeal swab carried out this (Monday) morning to the footballer Victor Osimhen, resulted in a positive result in Covid-19.

“The player will repeat the test this week.”

Osimhen has already missed a significant number of games this season, having been out of action since suffering a shoulder injury while on international duty with Nigeria last November.

The 22-year-old could be out of action for another 10 days.
