Management of Rangers International F.C, has approved a ten days break for its players following the four weeks suspension of all football activities by the nation’s football ruling authority, NFF.
Making the announcement, Friday, after a meeting with the players at the Nkponkiti players’ camp, the G.M/CEO of the ‘Flying Antelopes’, Prince Davidson Owumi, urged the players to be conscious of the health situations around them during the break.
The players were also challenged to maintain a high level of fitness during the break by the technical adviser of the side, coach Salisu Yusuf stressing that they could be called up earlier than expected should the league organizers, LMC cut shot the suspension of the league.
“This break is necessitated by the suspension order by the NFF on all football activities in the country and management in its wisdom wants its players to be with their various families in this challenging health period. It is our belief that the players would maintain a high level of discipline and return after the break stronger to challenge for a top finish in the season,” stated the astute administrator and former NPL boss.
Also speaking, coach Salisu Yusuf, said, “This is an emergency break but I hope we would be professional enough in our conducts so that we can maintain a high level of fitness when we return.”
