England born Nigerian Nnamdi Ofoborh recently joined the Rangers after a free transfer from Bournemouth but will be putting his career on hold for a while, according to Rangers manager.
Following Rangers match with Arsenal in a friendly that resulted in a draw, the manager of the Scottish club mentioned how unfortunate it is that the 21 year old midfielder would not be training pre-seasons with the team due to a heart condition
The heart issue was discovered after the mandatory Electrocardiogram (ECG) test. The results significantly placed a red flag on his medical file, and guarantees that more specialists will be seeing to him.
Gerrard affirmed that the club has well grounded medical experts who make sure to check and see to the health of players no matter how little whatever the infliction might be.
The manager, Steven Gerrard, stated the disappointment and frustration the team, and most especially, the midfielder, felt at the news, but was specific about the club hoping to be in full support of, and be there for, the player.
He mentioned that no matter how disappointed they are at this discovery, the health and disposition of a player is most imperative since it determines so much for the team.
Ofoborh had signed a pre-contract deal with Rangers on the 21st of February which was supposed to last four years as he was to officially begin this summer.
The player took to his Instagram to express how God has a reason for everything regardless of how negative the situation might seem. He is certain he would come back despite how extreme his condition seems.
