Rangers International F.C’ attacking sensation, Ifeanyi Egwim, who fractured his leg on the final match day of 2016 NPFL season that saw the ‘Flying Antelopes’ emerge champions of the league for the seventh time after a 32 years wait, is a very happy man playing competitive football again.
The Imo state born ball juggler who came in as a five minute substitute in the 2-1 win on the road for the Enugu side over Kwara United in Ilorin was full of thanks to the management of the club and government of Rt. Hon. Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi, who stood by him in the period the injury lasted.
“Sincerely, I am a very happy person today as I started playing competitive football again for my club Rangers and capping the appearance with our first away win of the season. I really thank God who made it all possible just as I won’t fail to express my thanks to the governor of Enugu state, Rt. Hon. Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi for his show of love and care since I broke my leg.”
He further said, “I can’t forget to thank Nigeria football followers for their prayers and show of love during my trail period. It can only get better as I hope to contribute my quota towards achieving the target of the team this season.”
It would be recalled that the former Rivers United attacking sensation broke his leg in the final match of the 2016 NPFL season against El-Kanemi Warriors in a 4-0 rout at ‘The Cathedral’, Nnamdi Azikiwe stadium, Enugu, with the executive governor of Enugu state present at the VVIP stand on October 2, 2016 when Rangers broke a 32 year wait for the league diadem.
