Devastating outlook for David Ospina in Napoli: uncertain future

To the recent health problems that have affected the continuity of David Ospina at Napoli, now a new problem would be added that would not allow the Colombian to have the expected peace of mind for the near future.

Although the national goalkeeper has been a fundamental piece of his team and during this season he has added 2,520 minutes distributed in 28 games in Serie A, this would not be the slightest guarantee for his stay in the Italian team, as revealed by this Friday – April 22 – the press of this country, which has dedicated an entire article to him to tell the details of the situation that Ospina would be going through.

The medium in charge of making the publication has been ‘CalcioMercato’, who has revealed that the plans of the goalkeeper and those of the institution seem to be distant for the next seasonIn addition, to take into consideration that as a substitute there is the most direct competition of the coffee goalkeeper.

The information that was revealed ensures that: “according to leaks from the headquarters of Castel Volturno, Ospina’s contract will not be renewed. The Colombian goalkeeper will presumably say goodbye at the end of the season, so this is where Meret will put himself at the center of the project.

If so, and if the Italian team leaves, Ospina would have to put an end to a career in Italy where he has added more than 100 games between all competitions and has only been able to win one trophy with the Neapolitan team, being the Cup of said country in the 2019-2020 season.

On the other hand and as a complement to what has already been mentioned, one of the referents of the Colombian National Team does not have the most favorable present in his team, Napoles. After failing to achieve regularity in goal over the last few games, the last week has not come with good news for the goalkeeper, who fortunately, no injury has kept him from the possibility of being part of his team; however, he has had a physical discomfort that has prevented him from carrying out the activity happily.

The Colombian was scheduled for the match against Roma and was shaping up to be a starter, as he has been so far this season. However, he was called off just hours after kickoff. “The footballer withdrew from the concentration with flu-like symptoms and a swab was performed that was negative,” reported the Neapolitan club through an official statement before the game against Roma.

Days after that, last Tuesday, April 19, again the communications of the Naples club released a new part of the health status of the coffee grower, in addition to a small summary of the training session that they were able to develop during the Italian morning at the training ground, Konbami Training Center: “Di Lorenzo played part of the group and personalized session on the pitch. David Ospina did not train due to the flu. Lobotka has undergone therapy and will be evaluated tomorrow.”

Thus, and after not representing any major seriousness for Ospina, it is expected that the medical department will give him the necessary treatment so that the Colombian can quickly return to work alongside his colleagues in the search to tighten the definition of the A series.

And so it was in the training report developed on April 21, the club’s official website exposed good news for the Colombian: “David Ospina returned to training and did differentiated work, in the gym and then on the field.”
