The team has been given an ultimatum to win four matches straight.
The Enugu Rangers coach, John Obuh, and his coaching assistants will be on half pay for the next two months until they meet a four must-win match ultimatum as soon as the second round of the Nigerian League 2013/14 season commences.
According to a statement by the spokesperson of the club, Foster Chime, the club’s management was unsatisfied with the performance of the coaches in the just concluded first round of the league season; hence the latest development.
Mr. Chime explained that Mr. Obuh and his assistants pay cuts were based on the coach’s attitude during a home match.
“Management on Wednesday, after a crucial meeting with the technical crew, took far-reaching decisions to improve the club’s performance in the second round after a poor run in the first round,” he said.
“This included four must-win straight matches starting with the El Kanemi match in Enugu; placing the technical crew on half salaries for two months to improve, and possible reductions.”
He also stated that the coaches were advised to beef up the team with quality new players, while plans are on to reduce the current playing staff strength of the club.
Enugu Rangers is 15th on the league table with 24 points from 19 matches.
The second half of the league commences after the Brazil 2014 World Cup.
