Enugu - Christian Chukwu, Rangers FC of Enugu Technical
Director, has expressed concern over strikers’ poor form.
The team’s finishing at goal needed to be worked upon for
them to retain their winning ways in the ongoing league, he said.
“Rangers FC will only need to work on its goal-scoring
finishing in getting back to its winning streak once more,” he said.
Chukwu, a former coach of the Super Eagles, attributed the
lapses in the team’s striking ability to some of the new players introduced
into the club.
He, however, expressed optimism that with time, the new
players would blend with the team’s style of play.
“Apart from that, we currently have a formidable team, especially
when you take a critical look at the team.
“The only thing lacking is that perfect and on-target
finishing for our strikers, especially the newly signed-on players.
“However, we will continue to work on the new players who
have already shown signs of blending well with our style of play.
