Nigeria’s legendary goalkeeper, Peter Fregene, is currently paralysed with a stroke. He is also bedridden and can only move around with the aid of a wheelchair. Fregene’s condition requires financial aid to better sustain himself.
The 71-year-old former Green Eagle Goalkeeper was Nigeria’s goalkeeper in the late 1960s, all through the 1970s and in the early 1980s. During his career, he won the Nigerian FA Cup with both ECN and Stationery Stores.
According to a Twitter user called Azuka Chiemeka, Fregene needs urgent financial support to help him get medical attention.
The legendary Nigerian shot-stopper was born in Sapele. He was a member of the Nigerian team that participated at the 1968 Olympics in Mexico City. Fregene was also a member of the Green Eagles squad that defended the 1980 Nations Cup two years later in Libya.
The news of his predicament is coming days after Nigerian billionaire Femi Otedola gave former coach of the Super Eagles, Christian Chukwu, a $50,000 cheque. The money was for him to get foreign medical treatment.
