General manager of Enugu Rangers, Davidson Owumi has revealed the club will soon publish list of players that will be with the team next season.

In an interview published by Rangers Media, Owumi said the club will soon begin preparations ahead of the 2020/21 Nigeria Professional Football League season.

He stressed that the Flying Antelopes will retain majority of it playing squad which featured for the club last 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 only a handful of quality legs will be sourced to fill noticed lapses in the team.

The General Manager also stated that the Enugu based club are ready to battle for the top honours when the 2020/21 season kicks off next month.

Rangers won the NPFL title for the first time in 30 years in 2016 and will be looking to add another championship under the tutelage of an experienced coach, Salisu Yusuf.

The former Super Eagles Assistant Coach, Salisu Yusuf, is expected to release the list of players selected to fight Rangers’ battles next season, Owumi added that the target is to beat the fourth position they got when the 2019/20 season was abruptly halted.

Recall that Rangers ended the regular season on fourth position with 37 points from 24 matches but they were pushed down a spot lower by the Point Per Game system used to select teams to represent the country in next season’ continental club competitions.
