- Henry Onyekuru wishes the Galatasaray vice-chairman speedy recovery from coronavirus
- Abdurrahim Abayrak and his wife tested positive to the epidemic
- The Nigerian striker says he believes the vice-chairman will return stringer
Super Eagles striker Henry Onyekuru has sent a consoling message to his club’s vice-chairman Abdurrahim Abayrak who tested positive to the dreaded coronavirus.
Turkish giants Galatasaray confirmed on Monday that the club vice-chairman is now a carrier of the dreaded epidemic including his wife Sukran Albayrak.
The statement further disclosed that both are in good condition and are now on the sixth day treatment process.
Albayrak is a major stakeholder in the club and a board member. He also served as an executive member of Galatasaray youth football from 1992 to 1994.
There are over 1200 confirmed cases in Turkey with 30 deaths so far.
Onyekuru posted a picture of the vice-chairman lifting him up after a game and captioned it in Turkish as translated: “Our vice-chairman, our hearts and our prayers, we believe that you will be back stronger than before. #Staystrong.”
Eagles defender Kenneth Omeruo replied the post with a prayer emoji in solidarity with his team-mate
Meanwhile, Super Eagles stars have, in a unique fashion, subtly passed their message on how to avoid contact with the rampaging novel coronavirus which has so far killed over 7,000 people across the globe.
With the pandemic spreading across the world most especially Europe, top professional leagues across the continent have been suspended while players are ordered to self-quarantine. Panic buyers are snatching up every tissue paper from all stores across the globe in bid to protect themselves.
Nigerian stars took time to challenge themselves as they juggled the 'precious item' in style and pass to another tagging it #StayHomeChallenge.
