Enugu Rangers go on two weeks break
Enugu Rangers began a two-week leave yesterday after the exertions of the 2018/2019 league season.
Rangers came third in the Nigerian Professional Football League (NPOFL) Super Six Play-Off in Lagos, which fetched them a CAF Confederation Cup ticket for next season.
According to a statement by the club, the Prince Davidson Owumi-led management of Rangers at a gathering over the weekend, thanked the players and coaches for their efforts in the season that ended with the Aiteo cup 2019 round of 32 loss to Lobi Stars in Minna, Niger State.
He described the performance of the team as great even when he agreed that much would have been welcomed.
“Let me start by thanking you all for the efforts you put in the ended season. Surely, we would have loved to be champions of the league and successfully defend our Aiteo Cup trophy, but God knows why we ended this way.
“As we embark on a two-week break, I urge us to have the needed rest and come back with vigor to challenge on all fronts,” he said.
On the continental ticket that the team achieved for the season, Owumi said, “Getting back to the continent is a good feeling, but our target at the start of the season was to be league and Aiteo Cup champions. We thank God for His mercies just as we can’t forget to appreciate the efforts of Enugu State government, under the leadership of Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi.”
