Chukwu rallies support for Rangers, as team battles Algeria’s J.S Saoura
Enugu Rangers held the Algerian side to a 1-1 draw in the first leg and need only a scoreless draw to qualify for the last qualifying round.
Speaking at the Nnamdi Azikiwe Stadium, Enugu, on Thursday evening, the former Super Eagles’ coach told journalists that no club across the globe could succeed without the media.
He added: “For me to really succeed in this onerous task of taking Rangers FC to greater heights, I need your unflinching support and co-operation. The essence of this parley is for me to familiarize with you, the sports journalists, in Enugu State, as well rub minds on the way forward for our darling team, Rangers.”
Enugu Rangers won the 2015/2016 NPFL title for the first time in 32 years last season.
Chukwu promised not to fail the Enugu State Governor, Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi, who found him worthy to steer the ship of the club, adding
that he would not rest until Rangers returned to what it used to be in
the 70s and 80s.
The Rangers boss hinted
that the players were in high spirit ahead of tomorrow’s return leg match with the J.S Saoura of Algeria in Enugu.
He added that the players had been duly motivated and were set to do the state and Nigeria proud and called on Rangers’ fans across the country to turn out en mass to cheer the club to victory.
