Speaking to brila.net, Pinnick served updates on moves being made to fly Chukwu to London for further medical treatment noting that everything had been done to get him in a very stable condition and he would be leaving for the UK next weekend.
“We are working hard on Christian Chukwu’s situation and I’m very much in touch with the hospital and Peter Thomas of the British Deputy High Commission in Lagos so we are seriously on top of things. We are looking at him leaving before next weekend”, he revealed.
Christian Chukwu captained Nigeria to her first ever football success when the then Green Eagles won the African Nations Cup in 1980 and he deservedly earned the nickname, ‘Chairman’ for his authority and commanding presence in the Eagles’ defence.
