Diaspora, Africa – (African Boulevard News) – Soccer fans across Africa were left concerned earlier this week after rumours swirled that former Super Eagles star, Wilson Oruma, was seriously ill and in need of help. However, the retired footballer has put these fears to rest after revealing his true health status.
Oruma’s health has been the subject of much speculation over the past few days, with social media platforms awash with rumours that he was battling a serious illness. However, speaking to reporters recently, the former midfielder revealed that he is in good health, and there is no cause for concern.
“My health is fine,” he said. “There were some reports circulating that I was seriously ill, but I can confirm that they are not true. I would like to thank everyone who has reached out to me during this time, and I want to let my fans know that I am doing well.”
Oruma’s statement will come as a relief to many fans who were worried about his health. The former player was a key member of the Super Eagles team that won the 1993 U-17 World Cup, and he went on to enjoy a successful career in Europe, playing for clubs such as Lens, Marseille, and Sochaux.
Despite his success on the pitch, Oruma has faced his fair share of challenges off it. In 2012, he was defrauded of over $2 million by a pastor and some fake businessmen. The incident left him in financial ruin and led to a period of depression.
However, in recent years, Oruma has made a comeback, and he is now involved in various business ventures. He has also been using his experience to mentor young footballers and help them avoid the pitfalls that he experienced.
“I am grateful for all that I have been through,” he said. “It has made me a stronger person, and I am now using my experience to help others. I want to encourage young footballers to stay focused on their dreams and avoid getting involved in things that can jeopardize their future.”
In conclusion, the news of Wilson Oruma’s good health status has put to bed the rumours of his ill-health that were circulating on social media platforms. Oruma, who is now involved in various business ventures, has urged young footballers to stay focused on their dreams and avoid getting involved in things that can jeopardize their future. The former Super Eagles star will no doubt continue to inspire young footballers across Africa and beyond.
