The reason I have to wear a mask for the rest of my career – Osimhen

Napoli forward, Victor Osimhen, has clarified that he will be wearing a mask for the entirety of his career due to safety considerations. Osimhen sustained a significant facial injury in a collision with Milan Skriniar during a Serie A match between Napoli and Inter Milan on November 21, 2021. Since his return from the injury, he has been donning a protective mask, which has gained popularity among Azzurri fans and has become somewhat of a trademark for the player.

In an interview with Brilla FM while on national duty with the Super Eagles at the African Cup of Nations (AFCON) in Ivory Coast, Napoli forward Victor Osimhen emphasized the necessity of wearing a mask for the remainder of his career due to safety concerns. Osimhen revealed that he has screws passing through his jaws and face, and even with the mask, he experienced a bloody face in the last match against Cagliari when the opposition’s goalkeeper hit him. He stressed the danger of playing without the protective mask given his existing condition.
