Luciano Spalletti admits Napoli missed Victor Osimhen, during his injury problems, but refused to confirm they would be topping the table if he had stay fit all season.
Victor Osimhen suffered a multiple facial injury in last October, following a clash of head with Inter Milan defender Milan Skrinia.
The 23-year-old player alsoo spent some few days in isolation, due to COVID-19.
Without Osimhen, The Partenopei slipped from the top of the table to fourth, but they’re back in the title race since the Nigerian returned.
After Saturday’s win, courtesy of Osimhen’s brace , Spalleti was asked if Napoli would be top of the table if Osimhen hadn’t been injured for such a long time with that multiple facial fracture.
He said : “He is one of the players we missed. In these tournaments, you want 18 players available all the time. Osimhen was missing, unfortunately we won’t have him next time through suspension, but at least he will be well-rested.”
Meanwhile, Osimhen received a yellow card for handball in stoppage time against Udinese and will therefore be suspended against Atalanta, along with Amir Rrahmani.
