The coach of German Bundesliga side Wolfsburg has provided an update on the condition of Nigerian teen forward Victor Osimhen, who is recovering from a minor surgery.

18 year old Osimhen was tipped to make his Bundesliga debut this year after reaching the professional age to play senior football as a foreigner, but injuries have so far denied him the chance to impress.

Top scorer at the last U-17 World Youth Championship, he recently posted pictures of his return to training for Wolfsburg, but it appears his injury situation is still a concern.

Ahead of their clash against Werder Bremen coach of the team, Valerien Ismael revealed that the forward was among three players who didn’t train ahead of the Friday night clash.

” Aside from Ashkan Dejagah, Ismail Azzaoui and Victor Osimhen ( He should be fit to join the squad next week) , the complete squad are in training”, the manager revealed at his pre match conference.
