Rangers invite 3 additional foreign players for trial

28 November 2016, 21:31

Enugu - Rangers Media Manager, Foster Chime says the club has invited three additional foreign players for trial ahead of its 2016/2017 Confederation African Football (CAF) Champions League campaign.

Chime told the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Enugu on Monday that the team had invited six foreign players in all to its ongoing pre-season camp in Benin, Edo.

He said that the additional foreign players would add bite to the team as it prepared for a schedule-loaded 2016/2017 football season.

According to him, the fresh legs of foreign players are part of the initiatives to solidify Rangers ahead of the 2016/2017 CAF Champions League as well as other football tournaments in the 2016/2017 season.

“Any of the foreign players who have what the team needs by the assessment of the technical coaching crew, would likely make the team.

“This also means that those co-opted would be signed as our players at the end of the day,” he said.
