Enugu Rangers International legend Christian Chukwu is optimistic that the ongoing re-organization at the club will see the team get back on track after an unimpressive start to the season.
The Flying Antelopes are languishing in 19th place in the 20-team 2019/2020 Nigeria Professional Football League (NPFL) table with one win, one draw and three losses, garnering four points from a possible 15 (although with two outstanding matches).
On the continental scene, the 7-time NPFL champions got their CAF Confederation Cup campaign off to a disappointing start when they were humiliated 3-1 by Pyramids of Egypt at their Nnamdi Azikiwe Stadium home ground, which was followed by a 4-2 spanking in their second group game away to Egypt’s Al Masry on Sunday.
A string of poor results led to the sacking of former coach Benedict Ugwu, with the NFF recently deploying Super Eagles Chief coach Salisu Yusuf to the club in a stop-gap measure to remedy the situation.
The former Super Eagles captain and coach, however, revealed that the team’s crisis would be remedied in good time to return the Enugu-based side to its pride of place in the top flight.
