The management of Enugu Rangers Football Club has denied the story that the club and the Enugu State government abandoned its former player and coach, Christian Chukwu, who is recuperating from a life threatening health challenge.
General Manager of the ‘Flying Antelopes’, Prince Davidson Owumi described the story as “completely baseless.
He said the club and Enugu State government had done all that was needed to help the coach back on his feet.
Owumi added that the club made the initial N200, 000 deposit for his admission and commencement of treatment at the private health facility.
Chukwu captained the senior national team of Nigeria as they won their first –ever Africa Cup of Nations title in 1980, receiving the brand new Unity Cup from then President Shehu Shagari.
