Former Super Eagles coach Christian Chukwu has spoken for the first time from his hospital bed in Enugu where he is currently under treatment.
There have been reports that Christian Chukwu has been abandoned since he got ill, and the coach has now rubbished the rumors claiming he was never abandoned.
Christian Chukwu thanked all Nigerians for their concerns over his health since the day he was admitted in hospital.
He also made it clear that the Enugu state government has been helpful to him since his health issues began.
“I sincerely thank Nigerians for their concern on my health. By the grace of God I’ll be back on my feet. It, however, feels bad that people have created controversy over my health. It doesn’t feel good.
”My friend, Benson Ejindu who lives in USA and who is patron of Ex-Rangers players has been tremendous too. He directed that I be brought to this hospital where I am now.
”I did not tell anybody that I have been abandoned. Ejindu did not also tell anybody that Enugu State Government has abandoned me,” Chukwu said.
