African footballers prefer native to orthodox doctors during injuries-Odewingie

 

Former Super Eagles striker, Osaze Odemwingie, has revealed that over 70 per cent of African footballers would rather seek help from native doctors during injuries than orthodox medical practitioners.

The 37-year-old Football star who currently plies his trade in Indonesia, made the allusion in an interview with championat.com, when he revealed how he received instant treatment from a native doctor in Benin City, Edo State when he was injured while playing football.

”I had a fall in training, I also hurt my shoulder and broke my arm. I was afraid to tell my mom so they took me to the local juju man. They poured hot water to relax their muscles. Somehow they returned the hand to the place, while I yelled, they twisted some small sticks.

“There was a rite with a chicken. I came home, my mother saw the hand: “Broke?” I answered: “Yes.” I was taken to a regular hospital, anesthesia was done, and they put the plaster on. All is well in the end,” he said.

Speaking further, he said, “At least 70% of players believe in it. They think that some kind of salve will save them. This is more suggestion. Brainwashing goes. ”
