It can be a hassle. He already had a pain before. We knew that risk was high.“This morning (Saturday), I asked him if he could play and he told me he felt good. I was going to take him out but I do not know. We’ll see in the week how it’s going to be. What the exams that will be done will say.”The 20-year-old received his Ligue 1 Player of the Month for September trophy before the start of the game against Bordeaux.Osimhen has scored eight goals in 13 starts for Lille in all competitions this season.—  Dotun OladipoManaging Editor/CEOPremium Eagle Media Limited(Publishers of The Eagle Online)27, Joseph Odunlami Street, off Thomas Salako Street, Ogba.
