Players of NPFL-side, Rangers have cause to smile as last season’s bonuses were paid

Players and officials of Rangers International FC of Enugu, on Wednesday, received their entitlements for the 2020/2021 Nigeria Professional Football League (NPFL) season.

The club’s Media Officer, Norbert Okolie, said this at a news briefing in Enugu, adding that the gesture had lifted the spirit of the team in camp for the NPFL matchday 13.

Mr Okolie said that the club was full of praise for Governor Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi for the approval and release of the funds.

“They have promised to reciprocate the gesture by putting up robust performance during the season,” he said.

He further said that the fund was handed over to the players and officials by the club’s Administrative Secretary, Ferdinand Ugwuarua.

In a remark, Mr Ugwuarua charged the players to redouble their efforts towards achieving the club’s target for the season. “Management is overwhelmed by this show of love from the governor, who is the number one supporter of our club.

“The release of the fund to settle bonuses due to players, coaches, and officials for last season is another display of government’s ardent love for our club.

“This is enough motivation for the current set of players to give their all in every match to help us achieve our set target for the season,” Mr Ugwuarua said.

Also, the club’s Technical Adviser, Abdul Maikaba, commended the governor for putting smiles on the faces of the players.
