Sullivan Chime, governor of Enugu State, has put smiles on the faces of players and officials of Rangers International, by approving the payment of 100% of their sign-on fees worth N141 million.
“Yes, the gorvenor has approved N141 million for the payment of sign on fees. This is coming at the time when the boys need all the motivation to excel in the remaining matches in the Nigeria Premier League,” Rangers’ media officer Foster Chime told Goal.com
“I want to say that it is not over yet. There are four key games yet to be played. But the greatest motivation will be the payment of the sign on fees.”
Chime, however, says the monies will not be paid out immediately, but assured everyone will get what is owed them in the next 14 days.
“Already the players are happy that they will get their money in the next two weeks. This weekend, all things being equal, we should be playing Shooting Stars in Ibadan.
“This is a massive game that means a lot things in the League. We intend to do well in the match and players are determined to get something out of that game.
“We know that we should have started the payment of the sign on fees, better late than never.
“We believe the payment of the sign on fees will further ginger the boys and make them concentrate on the four games yet to be played,” Chime said.
Rangers are presently on top of the league table with 58 points.
