NPFL: Rangers ready to win 2020/2021 Season – Coach Yusuf
By Tony Oji
Enugu Rangers International F.C, Coach Salisu Yusuf, has said that his target for the new season is to emerge champions of the Nigeria Professional Football league (NPFL), Orient Sports reports.
Salisu, who recently penned down a two-year deal with the ‘Flying Antelopes’ said in an exclusive chat that all the teams should be respected because they earned their place in the league.
“I always respect all the teams in the NPFL because that is why they are in the premier league. Any team in the premiership deserves some respect, so you need to work hard to be able to beat them. When you don’t show them respect, you will be in for some surprises,” stated the vastly experienced gaffer.
He went further to state that, “Every team we play, we make the encounter as a cup final. We also know that bigger teams in the league will always contest for the titles. I believe that the game of football is a game of mindset, so we believe that we can challenge seriously for the championship. We hope to do well this season, get the continental ticket and defend it in the second year. That is our objective, that is our focus.”
The Technical adviser to seven-time Nigeria league champions, stressed that in the game of football, there are high and low points but assured the teeming supporters of the club that he hopes to garner high points to lead the club to the league and cup double at the end of the season.
Orient Sports confirms that the Nigeria league organizer has again shifted the start date for the 2020/2021 NPFL season to a new date of December 13, 2020 subject to confirmation by the AGM.
