Gianpaolo Tartaro, the surgeon who operated on Napoli striker, Victor Osimhen, has provided more updates on his condition.
Osimhen picked up a face injury during a Serie A fixture against Inter Milan last weekend.
Tartaro has now revealed just how complex the player’s issue was.
According to him, the Super Eagles star’s eye came out of the socket because of the destruction of the malar bone.
He warned that the Nigeria must be careful while suggesting he may not play in the upcoming African Cup of Nations in Cameroon because he has to go through another surgery.
Osimhen fractured a cheekbone and eye socket as a result of the clash with Inter defender Milan Skriniar.
“The eye came out of its socket. It is not simple at all, in fact it is very delicate due to the crushing of the socket, due to the curving of the malar bone [which is] practically destroyed,” Tartaro said in an interview with Il Corriere dello Sport.
“We have to now look at a special mask for his case.”
