Lille manager Christophe Galtier is excited to declare Victor Osimhen fit for Saturday’s French Ligue 1 clash against Monaco at the Stade Louis II.
The 20-year-old caused a scare when he complained of chest pain and dizziness during Tuesday’s Coupe de la Ligue 2-0 win against Monaco.
The Nigeria international is now fit to play again.
"Victor (Osimhen) returned from Monaco yesterday after having passed the medical examinations. They showed that he is fit to play tomorrow,” Galtier stated during his interaction with the media on Friday.
“He had a very thorough assessment, and today we got the green light that he can play. And he wants to play.
Osimhen’s teammate, Benjamin Andre also provided an update on the forward’s fitness ahead of Saturday’s against Leonardo Jardim’s men.
“Victor was back this morning. We received a message from the hospital, and the results were reassuring. This morning he was running like a rabbit, always difficult to catch up with him. He was in my team in training. He is in good condition,” Andre told reporters.
Osimhen has scored 12 goals across all competitions for Les Dogues since his arrival from Belgian club Sporting Charleroi this summer.
