2023/2024 NPFL: Flying Antelopes not under pressure to win league, says Illechukwu

Posted : 08 March 2024

Fidelis Illechukwu, the Technical Adviser of Enugu Rangers International Football Club, stated that the team is not under pressure to win the 2023/2024 Nigerian Premier Football League (NPFL).

Illechukwu, in an exclusive interview on Friday in Enugu, mentioned that the current Rangers squad is built around young players for the future.

“We are not under pressure to win the league title; it is those who want to win the league that are under pressure. For us, we are doing our thing, if at the end of the day it happens, fine. We have a lot of young players we are working on for the future,” he said.

Regarding the recent upsurge in Rangers' performance in the league, the Technical Adviser stated that the team had an injury crisis in the first half of the league.

“In the first round, we had an injury crisis, especially in the defensive line, but now they have recovered. Even now, we have not started playing the new players we signed,” he said.

He described their next opponent on Sunday, Kwara United, as a formidable team but expressed optimism that Rangers would triumph.

“Kwara is a good team, no doubt, but we are prepared to meet them at the Cathedral, and hopefully, we will beat them come Sunday,” Illechukwu said.

He expressed satisfaction with the massive support of fans at the Nnamdi Azikiwe Stadium and urged them to come out on Sunday as usual to cheer the team to victory.

The Flying Antelopes are currently sitting third in the 20-man league with 40 points from 23 matches.
