The Rangers boss stated ‘With the expected start of the 2020/2021 football season in a few weeks’ time (Covid-19 Pandemic allowing), the management of multiple Nigeria league and challenge cup champions, Rangers International F.C have sounded it clear that the team are set to challenge on all fronts.’
“I am sincerely glad about the way we are going about our preparations for the fast-approaching football season. Our coaching crew is at work and will soon come up with a list of players retained and those that will bid us bye for the season. For management, it is our belief that a handful of quality legs will be sourced to fill noticed areas of lapses in the team,” stated Owumi.
In line with FIFA, CAF, and national football club licensing guidelines, Rangers management recently commenced processes for the ‘Flying Antelopes’ licensing for the fast approaching 2020/2021 football season.
Owumi said that the club wishes to be a step ahead of others both on and off the pitch as the new season approaches with applications sent to various agencies of the government with relevant services to the game.
“Letters have been sent to the Nigeria Police, Fire Service, Enugu state Emergency Agency, Enugu state Waste Management Authority, and the Medical institutions for necessary inspections and certification of our playing facility, Nnamdi Azikiwe Stadium, Enugu. It is our firm belief that we can get it done,” stated the former NPL boss.
