Napoli striker Victor Osimhen has clarified that he’ll wear a mask throughout his career due to safety concerns. Following a severe facial injury in a clash with Milan Skriniar in a Serie A match on November 21, 2021, he adopted the protective mask, now embraced by Azzurri fans.
Osimhen, currently on national duty at AFCON, emphasized the necessity of the mask, revealing a recent incident where he sustained a bloody face despite wearing it in a match against Cagliari.
“I have to wear the mask for the rest of my career because I have screws that actually pass through my jaws and face. I still have them till now,” he said.
“The last match I played against Cagliari — when I headed the ball, I had blood on my face, and the goalkeeper also hit my face, and there was blood that was even with the mask on.
“So it is really dangerous for me to play without using the mask, of course.”
