The team Manager of Enugu Rangers International Football Club, Amobi Ezeaku has declared that fans of the club don’t assault match officials.
In a chat with Amobi recently, he revealed that the club often sensitise the fans on the need to be peaceful during matches.
“It’s in the record that Enugu is the most peaceful state as far as League matches are concerned. An attempt to attack a referee is a crime talk more of actually attacking the referee. We are a disciplined group. Football is not a do or die affair,” he declared.
He spoke further on the team’s continental engagements, declaring that the target of the club is to lift the trophy.
“It’s about the players finding a point to say we have to be dedicated, resilience, tactical, hard-working and have total commitment from every department of the club.
“It’s a relatively tough group, the 4 teams are big clubs and I know that it is time for us to respect each other and be careful and tactically disciplined.
“I believe Rangers will come out of the group and I believe we will make progress, because we are not just playing as rangers we are playing as representatives of Nigeria. The target of Rangers is to lift the trophy it is possible, that’s the target of every club.
“We never say die’ spirit is what has been our motivation right from history, even in our tough times we use the quote ‘We never say die’ to motivate ourselves. We are also motivated internally. We are working as a team in order to lift this trophy not just for ourselves but for our families and for the country.
He further spoke on how the team will navigate through the season considering that they are engaged in different competitions.
“The frame work of The League Management Company empowers us to register up to 40 players, 35 regular players and 5 youth players.
“With 40 players we can play in the AITEO cup, CAF and the League, for each game we make use of 18 players. We understand what is at stake and we are able to manage the situation,” he concluded.
