Port Harcourt business man rescues Ofoegbu

Injured former Super Falcons defender, Gloria Ofoegbu finally had surgery on her knee after a Port Harcourt based business man came to her rescue.

Ofoegbu had been out injured since November 26, 2014 when she hurt her knee while playing for the Super Falcons in the Africa Women Championship in Namibia.

With the NFF issuing a statement denying that she was injured at the Africa Women Champions, the Rivers Angels player had resigned herself to fate until help came her way.

A Port Harcourt based business man who wants to remain anonymous watched her story on popular Lagos based Cable News Network, Channels TV as well as listened to various radio sports shows in Port Harcourt.

He took it upon himself to bring in Surgeons from the United States who examined her on October 17 and just over a month later, the surgery was performed.

Gloria Ofoegbu was accused by the Nigeria Football Federation of nursing a chronic right knee injury for five years and arthritis according to reports written by Super Falcons’ doctor, Omoye Akhigbe and team physiotherapist, Adaku Nwachukwu.

However, the foreign experts diagnosed her of a Meniscus Tear and a Grade IV Chondral Damage of her knees.

In a chat with the media officer of Rivers Angels, her club, Ofoegbu said she was indeed grateful to all that God used to remedy her situation.

“I am very happy and I want to thank the entire journalists that God used to bring this man, especially Channels Television.

“I equally want to appreciate the efforts of the selfless Sports presenters in Port Harcourt and also those in Abuja. They did well.

"I give glory to God for the success of the surgery and with the assurances from the Doctors, I will be back on my feet soon," said Gloria after a Church thanksgiving service on Sunday.
Gloria, a left-footed set-piece specialist incidentally scored for the Super Falcons in the same match before she copped the injury that could have been easily dealt with but is now proving to be a career-threatening one.

She has already started her rehabilitation process and will be out for a few months before regaining full fitness although doctors told her that her chances of playing football again "are very slim" due to the lateness of the surgery.
