The mercurial midfielder and youngest player in the Green Eagles team that won the African Nations Cup in 1980 for the first time, according to Harrison Jalla Chairman PFAN Task Force is down with an ailment that requires urgent medical attention.
“I did put a call through to him (Henry Nwosu) to inquire about his health, when I heard about his deteriorating condition. But I could hardly hear him as he had a faint speech.
“He told me that his situation required urgent medical attention. This is a clarion call to the Nigeria Football Federation, Hon. Minister of Sports, the government of Imo State and all Nigerians of goodwill to rally round Nwosu to save his life.
“Nwosu was a delight to watch in his days at defunct NNB, ACB, Iwuanyanwu Nationale and the Super Eagles. He is a living legend.”
