Rangers International FC of Enugu have moved into close camping in preparation for the 2013/2014 Nigeria Professional Football League (NPFL) season.

Paul Ozor, the club’s General Manager (GM), told the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Abuja that the camp which opened at the Rojenny Stadium, Oba, Anambra, would last for three weeks.

According to Ozor, 33 players and the team officials opened the camp on January 30 while the team will return to Enugu on February 21 for their first season encounter against Nembe City FC.

“I am very happy that the boys have assured me that they are very willing to play this season and that they are going to put in their best.

“We have a good number of our old players but we infused some young talented players who were part of the team that represented Nigeria at the U-17 World Cup.

“We hope that as the season starts, Rangers will do a turnaround and make sure the trophy is ours this time.’’

The Rangers GM noted that the appointment of John Obuh, the former Flying Eagles coach would also boost the club’s chances of winning the 2013/2014 league season.

He, therefore, urged the League Management Company (LMC) to ensure equal and adequate live coverage of the matches as it would help to curb hooliganism and encourage healthy competition.

“All we are asking is that all the matches be televised; don’t televise my match and next time you don’t go to televise the other person’s match.

“I believe that if this is done, we will know the actual champions of the league.

“It’s not winning at all cost or by all means; what we need is to know who will be the actual champion of the 2013/2014 league season.’’

He commended the LMC for its laudable initiatives for the forthcoming season aimed at bringing sanity to the league but urged it to match its words with action.

NAN recalls that Rangers had earlier picked the new stadium in Nanka, Anambra, constructed by a philanthropist, Polycarp Emenike, for their camping but later had a change of plan.

NAN reports that four Rangers players: Ejike Uzoenyi, Ugonna Uzochukwu, Christian Obiozor and goalkeeper Chigozie Agbim are currently on national assignment with the Super Eagles at the Africa Nations Championship (CHAN).
