Former Nigeria international Victor Agali has advised Victor Osimhen not to hurrily return back from injury as it could be detrimental.

WITHIN NIGERIA recalls that, Osimhen on Tuesday declared himself ready to feature for Nigeria at next year’s AFCON in Cameroon despite just coming back from a facial injury.

The Napoli striker fractured his eye socket and cheekbone after colliding with an Inter Milan player.

Following the injury and after undergoing surgery, Napoli announced that Osimhen would be sidelined for three months which automatically rule him out of the continental showpiece.

And Agali has urged Osimhen not to put his health at risk by rushing back to action.

Agali believed that health is more important than any other thing.

“It’s a good thing, it’s positive from him and I appreciate what he is doing but he should be cautious because football is beyond 2021 AFCON,” Agali said on ‘The Sports Breakfast Show’ on Brila FM.

“He should wait for the doctors to declare him fit, people like us have made that mistake because we were anxious to do something, to satisfy lots of people and we paid for it so he should be careful. He should stay quiet and trust the experts to decide for him.”

The Eagles are in Group D with Egypt, Guinea-Bissau and Sudan.
