Rangers International Football Club of Enugu is set to unveil 14 new players on Thursday, the club’s spokesman, Norbert Okolie, said on Wednesday.
“The unveiling of our new players will be done on Thursday at the main bowl of Nnamdi Azikiwe Stadium in Enugu.
“We expect all our die-hard supporters at the event, so that they can see the quality of the new players that we have been able to assemble to defend the Rangers colours,” the club spokesman said.
Okolie said in Enugu that the new players would help to strengthen the Flying Antelopes in their 2017/2018 Nigerian Professional Football League (NPFL) campaign.
