Henry Nwosu, a former Super Eagles midfielder has appealed to Nigerians for help after being diagnosed with an undisclosed terminal ailment.
Nwosu, aged 59 was a member of Nigeria’s first title-winning African Cup of Nations squad in 1980.
The ex super eagles player is currently receiving treatment at the Asaba Specialist hospital in Delta State.
The former footballer told reporters that he has spent all his fortune while trying to stay alive.
“I can’t say anything now about my ailment until next week, as the results of some of the tests I underwent have not been brought to me.
“Some people have sent me money to help the process, which I appreciate so much. Today (Sunday), someone from an All-Star club I belong to in Lagos sent me N100,000, while another sent me N50,000, which I appreciate. I need all the help I can get now to stay alive.
“I know how much I have spent here at the Asaba Specialist Hospital, it has not been easy.”
Meanwhile, Chairman of Task Force of the Professional Footballers Association of Nigerian, Harrison Jalla, has also made a passionate plea to the Minister of Youth and Sports Sunday Dare, the Imo State Governor, Hope Uzodinma, and the President, Nigeria Football Federation, Ibrahim Gusau, to come to Nwosu’s aid.
