Amapakabo signs new 2-year contract with victorious Enugu Rangers

27 October 2016, 10:44

Enugu - Coach Imama Amapakabo has signed a two-year contract extension with Rangers International FC, Enugu.

Amapakabo led Rangers to win the 2015/2016 Nigeria Professional Football League (NPFL) league title after a 32 year drought.

Rangers Media Director, Foster Chime, told NAN in Enugu that Amapakabo had put  pen to paper with the club’s management.

“This has ended the speculation whether Amapakabo is going to continue with Rangers or not,’’ Chime said.

The media director, however, did not disclose the terms, conditions and privileges in the contract but said it was a “handsome package“.

He said that the club’s management would be looking forward to also renew contract of assistant coaches of the club immediately their current contracts expire on Oct. 31.

“The club would be signing a one year contract with the assistant coaches as soon as their current contracts expire on Oct. 31 this year.

“However, the management would also be looking on how to trim the current nine assistant coaches of the club to a manageable number,’’ the media director said.

He revealed that the management had set a committee headed by the Secretary of the club, Steve Oruruo, to work and harmonise with Coach Amapakabo on technical programmes for the 2016/2017 NPFL and Confederation of African Football (CAF).

“The committee will assist Amapakabo to see how the programme for the two leagues – NPFL and CAF 2016/2017 season – would worke and aid the club in achieving its target,’’ he said.
