Former Super Eagles player, captain, and coach, Christian Chukwu, is currently battling an undisclosed ailment and is in urgent need of financial assistance.
The former Eagles boss is said to need the sum of about $50,000 which will cover expenses to the United States of America to undergo surgery and further medical treatment.
The news of Chukwu’s ailment was made public by Benson Ejindu, the patron of former Enugu Rangers players association, both in Nigeria and all over the world.
“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,” said Ejindu.
“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.”
Meanwhile, the Nigerian Football Federation has also disclosed its readiness to support Chukwu.
