A former captain and coach of the Super Eagles, Christian Chukwu, is seriously down with an undisclosed ailment.
This was revealed by the Benson Ejindu, the patron of former Enugu Rangers players association, while speaking to newsmen.
Ejindu also revealed Chukwu will be needing about $50,000, to be flown to the United States of America to undergo surgery and for other medical treatment.
“Christian ‘Chairman’ Chukwu, who captained the famous Enugu Rangers International FC and the Nigeria national team in the 1970s and early 1980s, needs a different type of support – your financial support. Your support, no matter how small, will offset the cost of surgeries and treatments to restore his debilitating health.
“I am asking you to join me, this time around, in raising funds for Chairman Chukwu, who is currently in Nigeria receiving treatments for various ailments. Your financial support will help fly him to the United States for better treatment.
“We are hoping to raise about $50,000 to cover Christian Chukwu’s round trip flight from Nigeria and all the medical expenses. Leftover funds will help set up a health and welfare account for all Ex Rangers Players,” he said.
