Professional Footballers Association of Nigeria (PFAN) donated Fifty thousand naira (N50,000) as support for the medical bills of former coach of defunct Sharks of Port Harcourt, Dediare Ebiyon.
President, PFAN and former Super Eagles winger, Tijani Babangida (MON) had directed the Union’s League Director, Victor Ezeji to visit and present the cash sum to the coach who is diagnosed with partial stroke and presently receiving treatment at an undisclosed hospital in Delta State.
The President of the Players Union who prays for quick recovery of the coach admitted that he is aware that many ex-players and coaches are also suffering from one disease or the other and promised to extend such gesture to those who need the Union’s assistant. He added that such gesture will also cover registered members who are also down with health challenges.
According to him, many players and coaches will benefit from the PFAN planned health insurance scheme that aimed at giving treatment to coaches and players who are experiencing health challenges.
