Victor Osimhen’s Surgeon Says Osimhen Could Afcon
Osimhen walked off with a swollen cheekbone and black eye after clashing with Milan Skriniar in Inter Milan’s box. However, after undergoing successful surgery on Tuesday, Tartaro, in an interview, said that it was a complex operation as the clash damaged his face badly.
According to the surgeon said: “Osimhen injury was not a simple cheekbone fracture but also affected several bones of the face.” “It was not a shock trauma, but compression: the kinetic force generated by the crushing of Osimhen’s face against Skriniar’s created devastating damage.”
“It is still too early to talk about recovery times because the surgery was complex: the conditions of the player’s face were very bad, but I guarantee that the surgery was perfectly successful,” he added.
