Former Enyimba coach Gbenga Ogunbote has penned a contract deal with Enugu Rangers and the full details will be revealed later this week.


Ogunbote will now replace Sylvanus Okpala, whose two-month stop-gap managerial role will run out tomorrow.

“Ogunbote has signed as Rangers new coach,” an official of the Enugu State sports ministry said.

“He will resume in the first week of November when Sylvanus Okpalla’s two-month deal would have expired.”

He has previously handled Sunshine Stars, Giwa FC and Shooting Stars. Ogunbote was in Enugu for contract talks with Rangers.

But what has not been decided as at now is what government will do with Okpala at the end of his two-month deal.
