Napoli’s record-signing and Nigeria International, Victor Osimhen remains positive for COVID-19 after a fresh test was conducted on him on Monday.
This was confirmed by the Italian club on their official Twitter handle.
The striker first tested positive for the virus upon return to Naples on New Year’s Day, after spending time in Nigeria.
In some videos, Osimhen was seen dancing without a facemask, while his guests also broke COVID-19 protocols, which angered manager Gennaro Gattuso and the club’s fans.
After 10 days in isolation, Napoli, however announced the player was still positive.
The Italian club on their Twitter handle, wrote, “The result from Victor Osimhen’s Covid-19 test this morning has come back positive. The player will be tested again during the week.”
The forward has already missed a significant number of games this season, as he has been out of action since suffering a shoulder injury while on international duty last November.
