Lagos - Enugu Rangers expect to qualify for CAF competition next season, following the appointment of Kelechi Emeteole as the team's new technical advisor.
Emeteole is held in high regard at the Posta Rangers and the leadership of the club are confident that he will be able to fulfil his new mandate next term.
"Emeteole got Rangers job purely on merit ahead of his other colleagues who also applied for the position," said spokesman Foster Chime.
"What this means is that he has to meet the target which management has set for him - get Rangers a continental ticket in the 2014/2015 football season that's all," added Chime.

Chime created further clarity on the matter by explaining that this did not mean he necessarily had to qualify for the Champions League but that qualification for the CAF Confederations Cup would be more than satisfactory.
"Nobody is saying it must be the CAF Champions League ticket, but a ticket for Rangers to participate at the continental campaigns next year," added Chime.
"Rangers teeming followers and the management are pained that for years the club has existed without a trophy at local and continental levels, it is not good enough and there has to be an end to it."
Rangers finished their last campaign in eighth position on the league standings, where they accumulated 58 points in the allotted 38 matches. Champions of Nigeria in 1984, Rangers have failed to make tremendous strides in league competition since then.
The current management team at the club is confident that will change in the foreseeable future.
