    While Uzoho recovers and we wish him well, his club should get Ezenwa as a replacement

      Okay sir, they have heard your mediocre suggestion

      • The guy does mean it! Satirical statement, protesting the investigation of Ezenwa to the SuperEagles. 

        Sorry, I’m not a smart Alec, but that’s my understanding.

    We should stand by our players in their time of need. Uzoho has gotten this injury on national duty. He must not be abandoned! His care should not be left only to his club! Our players should have comprehensive health insurance coverage, and adequate compensation in the event of an injury (similar to workers compensation in the U.S.). Get well soon, Uzoho!

    ACL….ACL oh…..ACL..! Every sportsman’s worst nightmare. I wished and prayed that right angled twist of that knee wouldn’t involve his ACL…..but deep down within me, I knew it would only take a miracle.

    Be strong Francis……We remain behind you in this trying times as always.

    Quick recovery son…..!!!
