With the expected announcement for the resumption of football activities in the country from Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) in the coming days after the lifting of suspension on contact sports by the Presidential Task Force on Covid-19 and NCDC, Rangers International F.C youthful attacking sensation, Chinonso Eziekwe, has assured the club’s teaming followers that the 2020/2021 season will be one that will see a lot of trophies won for the state.
Eziekwe who joined the ‘Flying Antelopes’ fold from NNL side, Lamrey United F.C got all the support he desired as he was thrown into the continent and top flight actions and he rates his performance high while promising to improve on his output in the coming season.
In an exclusive chat, ‘Chilavert’ as the sleeky forward is also known, said that self-motivation, support from the players he met in the team and the encouragement from the management and coaches were the major reasons for the level of successes recorded in the immediate past season that was halted by the Covid-19 pandemic.
“I must say a big thank you to the coach, management and team mates for the support shown towards me in the past season and I am optimistic that the coming season will be better for us in Rangers as I see us going for all the trophy at stake in the land. No doubt, we would have loved to get back on the continent in the coming season but the pandemic did not let us actualize our dreams and we appeal to all our fans for their understanding as we urge them to continue the massive support for us as we challenge for a double in the coming season,” stated the vastly improved goal poacher.
With five goals in all competitions last season, Chinonso said that even when he is satisfied with his goals return in his first season in top flight football actions, he dreams of going a step further in his goals account in the fast approaching season stressing, “Five goals in my first season in the premier league was good but there could have been more had the season ran its full course but I have the belief that in the coming season, by God’s grace and support of my team mates, more goals will rain from me to help the team achieve its dreams of been crowned league and Aiteo cup champions.”
The youthful strike sensation holds dearly to his heart the goal against Togolese side, A.S.C Kara in the second round of 2019/2020 CAF Confederation cup which qualified Rangers for the group stage of the competition while bemoaning the chalking off his well-placed effort that would have been the equalizer for his team against Dakkada F.C in Uyo in Rangers’ 3-2 away victory on what turned out to be the last match of the season.
