“Osimhen’s injury was not just a simple fracture to the cheekbone, as it involved many other bones in his face,” explained Tartaro to 1 Stadion Radio.

“It wasn’t an impact injury, it was one of compression. The kinetic force generated by the crushing of Osimhen’s face against the back of Skriniar’s head did devastating damage.

“In order to repair the fractures, I had to insert six plaques and up to 18 screws.”

Although the figure given for a full recovery is 90 days, Osimhen’s surgeon warns it is still too early to tell the full effects of this injury, Tribal Football reports.

“It really was a complex operation. The condition of his face was really bad, but I can guarantee the surgery was a complete success.”
