Super Eagles striker, Victor Osimhen has opened up on his near-death injury he had against Inter Milan in a Serie A game.
Recall the ugly incident happened on November 21 2021 in Napoli’s loss to Inter in the Serie A clash.
Osimhen recently revisited the issue while speaking in a pidgin interview on Wazobia FM, detailing the trauma he went after undergoing a surgery to fix the facial injury.
The former Lille man also revealed he had 18 screws in his face, which put him in severe pain.
“That injury I had against Inter Milan was like a near-death injury. I am the only one that felt it, and I can only speak about how I felt because it was my face and body.
“But to be able to stand up without using the stretcher, walk out of the pitch on my own, then I knew that it was something I could handle.
“For me, as I got to the hospital, I told my doctor that I would be out for two weeks maximum.”
“When the scan came out, I fractured many bones, which they had to remove and fix inside again.
“I have like 18 screws under my jaw. I went through a lot. A lot of sleepless nights. I could not sleep, I could not eat with the pain. But at the end of the day, I am a lion, and I know the kind of mentality I have.
“In my mind, I had already scheduled my return following the surgery.”
