Okolie disclosed this to newsmen in Enugu on Thursday saying that the players and technical crew proceeded on Christmas break on Dec. 24 and to return on Dec. 30.

Rangers’ management released the players and the technical crew to celebrate Christmas with their families and loved ones.

“The break was due to the club’s good outing at the Confederation of African Football (CAF) and to ensure the club continued its good work in 2019.

“We want the players to meet their loved ones and come back stronger, fresh and with a positive mind set for the year 2019 challenges.

“Rangers have a heavy schedule ahead of them and want to keep pace with it as we have the ongoing CAF competition, Nigeria Professional Football League (NPFL) and the Aiteo/ NFF football matches to prosecute.

“The players are human and needed to see their kids, parents and well wishers above all receive parental blessing,’’ he said.

Okolie said that the club management wants the best for the players and that the management gave the seven days break owing to the busy schedule of the club.

The spokesperson thanked the club management for its gesture to the players and technical crew.

He also thanked God for an injury-free 2018 and prayed for God’s favour in the year 2019.
