Enugu Rangers Champions League campaign threatened by players’ anger
Players of Nigerian Professional Football League champions Rangers Int’l FC have expressed anger and disappointment in the club management ahead of a CAF Champions League clash with JS Saoura in Algeria on Friday.
According to Africanfootball, the players questioned the club’s commitment to their welfare especially in comparison with other clubs in the country.
“Why is it that it’s only in Rangers we always have story after story?” questioned one of the visibly bitter players before they left for Algeria.
“This is Champions League, not NPFL,” added another Rangers star.
Skipper Okey Odita, who did not make the matchday squad to Algeria, was called up to douse the tension over this paltry allowance, but he could do very little about it as the players stuck to their guns and refused to receive the cash. -Africanfootball
Rangers who were swashbuckling on their way to securing the NPFL crown last year have been a shadow of themselves this season. Their title defence has begun poorly as they reside in the bottom half of the table after taking a paltry six points from their six matches.
