Rangers Break 32-Year-Old Jinx, Win NPFL Title


Rangers Sunday were crowned champions of Nigeria after a 32-year wait as they defeated El Kanemi Warriors 4-0 at home to finish top of the table on the final day of the season. ‘The Flying Antelope’ finished on 63 points from 36 matches, three points ahead of runners-up Rivers United.

Commenting on the victory of the team, the Head coach, Amapakabo, said he wants to pinch himself severally to be sure the side are champions. Amapakabo who was understandably dumbfounded after the heroic performance said he was excited winning the top-flight title in his first stint as head coach of the Enugu outfit.

“It’s unfortunate that the whole season campaign has to end on somehow sad note with the last minute injury on substitute, Ifeanyi Egwim. “However, we are thankful to God that Enugu Rangers are champions of the 2015/16 Nigeria Professional Football League (NPFL).



“This glorious performance happened after anxious waiting for a whole 32 years. “The players have been exceptionally wonderful from start to finish and they truly imbibe the catchword campaign ‘believe’.

“I’m excited beyond word and need to sleep and wake up as well as pinch myself severally to be sure that what is going on at the moment is not mere dream but reality. “I know we are champions after the hard-fought win at Ikorodu United but I wanted us to be pronounced officially as champions after the final day clash against El Kanemi Warriors.

“I’m happy winning the top-flight title in my first stint as coach of Enugu Rangers. “I want to sleep over what is going on right now perhaps when I wake up the celebration will start in full swing,” said the former Enyimba coach to supersport. com.
