ENUGU – Rangers International Football Club of Enugu on Thursday said it has placed members of its team’s technical crew on half salaries following the club’s poor performance.
In a statement in Enugu by its Director of Media, Foster Chime, the club said the team performed poorly in the first stanza of the 2013/2014 Nigeria Professional Football League (NPFL).
It said the affected officials would only be paid half salaries for two months before the club management would review the decision.
The statement said the club management has also placed its Technical Adviser, John Obuh, on half salary for an additional two months.
It said this was as a result of his alleged ungentlemanly behaviour in the match against Gombe United FC, another NPFL side.
The statement said the club planned to get new players to beef up the team before the league’s second stanza resumes.
It said the decisions were reached at a meeting between the club management and the technical crew to review the first stanza of the league.
The statement said the “far-reaching decisions’’ taken were meant to improve the club’s fortunes in the second stanza of the league.(NAN)
