Pinnick offers Oruma accommodation, national team job

President of the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF), Melvin Amaju Pinnick, says distressed former Super Eagles midfielder, Wilson Oruma, will be offered a coaching job in one of the national teams.

Oruma is currently down with emotional disorder after being duped of N2 billion by fake oul businessmen.

Pinnick has reportedly picked up the former player’s hospital bills and relocated him to a better equipped one.

“By next week, Oruma will move into my house before they finish furnishing the three bedroom flat where he would stay’’, the NFF President confirmed.

“His story is a pathetic one and we cannot allow him to die. I am rendering this help to him from one Warri man to another. We are Warri Ambassadors’’.

Pinnick added: “All we need to do is to show him love. I ate with him. He’s stable. The NFF will include him to play a role in our award ceremony coming up soon. Thereafter, we’ll include him in the U-20 national team. Come June, we’ll also include him in the contingent to Russia to cheer the Super Eagles.

“I’m still talking with some of the clubs he played for to allow him come and do a coaching course with them’’.
