Despite losing 2-0 to Niger Tornadoes last weekend, the chief executive officer of Rangers International Football Club of Enugu, Ozor Paul Chibuzor, has said the loss cannot truncate their desire to win a continental ticket this season.
Speaking in a telephone chat with Sports Vanguard, Monday, the club boss said, â€œthatâ€™s football for you. You win some and lose some but that does not mean you lose your focus.â€
He was optimistic that the Flying Antelopes, as Rangers is fondly called by their teeming supporters, would bounce back to reckoning in their subsequent matches.
â€œWe are not deterred by the loss in Minna. What we need do is to regroup and face our subsequent matches with all seriousness,â€ adding, â€œand we have the capacity to achieve our target.â€
Continuing, the CEO said that the players and the technical crew had sworn to approach the remaining matches with renewed vigour because nobody wants to miss a trophy this season.
On the part of the management, the CEO assured â€œwe have put all the necessary things required for a successful campaign,
â€œWe have paid all their allowances and over fifty per cent of playersâ€™ sign on fees. I think we have the best welfare package in the Premier league today.â€
He disclosed that the state governor was eager to sip from the Globacom League and FA Cup trophies as it had been long since the club won a trophy.
â€œWe canâ€™t wait for this to happen and there is no better time than now when the governor is doing everything for the club to succeed. A trophy or two would not be too much for the kind of support we are getting from the governor,â€ Chibuzor said.
