However, the heightening flames of tension of the condition was doused after the game by Lille manager, Christophe Galtier, who reassured fans Osimhen isn’t in any critical condition.

“We just talked to him, he’s fine. Everything is back to normal. He experienced dizziness and pain,” Galtier told Canal +.
