Former Nigeria Professional Football League (NPFL) champions, Rangers International yesterday unveiled Gbenga Ogunbote as their head coach for the coming season.

The club also appointed former Rangers and Sharks striker, Davidson Owumi as their general manager with Festus Onu as chairman.

Owumi has previously worked at Rangers as the club’s CEO and was at Warri Wolves as CEO as well.

Ogunbote, who was head coach at Enyimba last season, was officially presented to the public at the State House in Enugu before the Governor Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi.

Ugwuanyi charged the Rangers newly-appointed officials to work as a team in order to win trophies.

He hopes that the new officials will guide the club to winning ways after an underwhelming campaign in all competitions, including the NPFL last season.

“I charge you both to work together and bring this team, which is the pride of the southeast and Nigeria, back to winning ways, which I know is very possible with cooperation from both parties,” the Enugu State governor told the new club officials following the ceremony to officially unveil them to the public.

Rangers, which won the league title for the first time in 32 years in the 2015/2016 season, barely escaped relegation to the lower division last season.
