“I see them doing well if they could make certain things
near-perfect especially through hard work.
“The club needed to put a lot of hard work into tactical
discipline and be able to understudy their opponents before any match.
“Putting all these things I have mentioned, with the zeal of
the proprietor of the club and his supporters, the club’s new found
followership and success-hungry players, the club will likely do well.

make a name in the continent and football world in general,’’ Chukwu, who is
the Technical Director of Rangers FC, said.
