Ugonna happy to be back at Enugu Rangers

Former CHAN Eagles bronze medalist and Chippa United defensive midfielder, Ugonna Uzochukwu is back at Enugu Rangers and is a happy man.

Ugonna also had a stint with with Moroccan side, Olimpique Club de Khouribga before he returned to Rangers.

The midfielder revealed that he was attracted back to Rangers because of the way the club treats player welfare as well as the family like atmosphere at Enugu.

Well, I must have to say that my coming back to Rangers is for good knowing how we worked the last time I featured for them.

This is a club that treats every player with respect just as they respect players’ contracts. I am very glad for this second coming and believe that I am here to help us challenge to emerge champions of the league at the end of the season. The welcome I and Nwofor received will push me to give my hundred percent whenever I am selected for any match,” Ugonna said.

The midfielder who has featured nine times for the senior national team with two goals to his credit advised other talented Nigerian footballers roaming the streets of various European countries to retrace their steps back home to rediscover themselves.

We have a lot of good clubs in the country that can take a lot of our brothers who are roaming the streets of European countries in the name of playing football. Let us come home, rediscover ourselves, lift our league football to a higher level and the foreign clubs would surely come for us.”

He rejoined the ‘Flying Antelopes’ with his former team mate at Anambra Warriors, Uche Nwofor.

Both Ugonna and Nwofor had played for the Anambra Warriors from where they joined Rangers some seasons back.

Rangers are currently placed 7th on the NPFL log with 23 points from sixteen matches.
