CAF Confederation Cup: Enugu Rangers await .5m largesse

The boys had a slim 1-0 win against Tunisia’s CS Sfaxien in Sunday’s CAF confederation Cup.

Enugu Rangers are awaiting the N500, 000 accrued to them having scored just one goal in Sunday’s CAF Confederation Cup duel against Tunisia’s CS Sfaxien.

The Flying Antelopes who on Monday returned to training ahead of their mid-week Nigeria League clash against ABS FC were promised N.5m for each goal scored on Sunday but failed to make the best of the offer dangled before them as they squandered the myriad of chances.

As at the time of filing the report, Rangers were yet to get the money even though the players insist the club chairman, Festus Onu, is a man of his words and would surely give them the promised sum.

The sum of N6m was also promised by the Enugu State Governor if Rangers scaled the hurdle posed by Sfaxien to make the group phase of the competition.

Meanwhile Rangers defender, Madu Chibuzor, is confident his team will make it to the group phase of the CAF Confederations Cup despite enjoying just a slim 1-0 lead going into the second leg in a fortnight’s time in Sfax, Tunisia.

Chibuzor who was captain for Sunday’s game assured that the Flying Antelopes will be going to Tunisia determined to avoid defeat.

According him, Rangers were able to create several chances on Sunday but failed to convert and that will be corrected going into the second leg in two weeks time.

“We have a slim lead like you rightly said but we also know that we only need to avoid defeat to make the next phase.

“I am sure the Coaches have seen the mistakes we made on Sunday and am sure they will correct them and we will qualify,” the Rangers stand-in skipper remarked.
