Rangers Cancel Training Resumption For New NPFL Season
Former Nigeria Professional Football League, NPFL champions, Rangers International FC, Enugu has postponed indefinitely, its planned training resumption ahead of the 2020/2021 season, Bestchoicesports.com.ng can report.
The 2018 Aiteo Cup winners had earlier announced Sunday September 14 as their resumption date ahead of the new season.
However a release Monday from the club notes that the training resumption has be shifted sine die
The release stated that after a brief management meeting, Monday, the G.M/CEO, Prince Owumi, stated that the postponement became necessary due largely to the current announcement from NCDC/PTF over the Covid-19 health protocols.
“We are a law-abiding institution and will in no way flaunt laws put in place by a well constituted government body like NCDC and PTF. The earlier information at our disposal made us make our earlier announcement for our players to return but with further clarifications from NCDC and PTF, we are compelled to direct our players against returning to the players’ camp. When we get clearance, they will be informed of when to return,” stated Owumi.
Recall that both old and new players had been instructed to report for duties at the weekend following earlier information on the lifting of suspension on football activities but with the latest directive reversing the earlier order, management decided to call a halt for the resumption of activities in obedience to the Covid-19 health protocols.
