Defiant Rangers’ CEO vows to win titles this season

By Jacob Ajom
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, “that’s football for you. You win some and lose some but that does not mean you lose your focus.”

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.

“We are not deterred by the loss in Minna. What we need do is to regroup and face our subsequent matches with all seriousness,” adding, “and we have the capacity to achieve our target.”

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 “we have put all the necessary things required for a successful campaign,

“We have paid all their allowances and over fifty per cent of players’ sign on fees. I think we have the best welfare package in the Premier league today.”

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.

“We can’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,” Chibuzor said.
