Raid on Rangers’ Coach fails

The desire of Kano Pillars to snatch the Coach of Rangers International FC, Salisu Yusuf, has suffered a setback.

Speculations were intense in the media suggesting that Pillars planned to raid the Enugu Club for the main coach.

Also, management of the Kano Club reportedly said it welcomed the idea of Coachi Salisu heading northwest to join Pillars.

There were also media speculations suggesting that Coach Salisu was planning a defection to Kano Pillars FC.

Rangers Management issued a warning yesterday in a bid to fend off potential recruiters of the Coach.

Rangers said it was not happy with the speculations that Coach Salisu Yusuf is planning to join another league side.

In the statement, Rangers clarified that Salisu signed a two-season contract and had only completed one season.

It therefore asked those interested in the coach to follow the rules.

“Any club that wishes to engage the services of Coach Salisu Yusuf as a matter of need, sentiment or commitment is advised to professionally do the needful according to LMC rules and best practices across the globe,” the Club said in the statement.

Chairman of Kano Pillars FC, Alhaji Surajo Shaaibu Yahaya Jambul admitted an interest but regretted that they couldn’t hire Salisu.

“No doubt both Pillars FC and Coach Salisu Yusuf indicated interest to work together but Man proposed God disposed.

The God’s one is the best,” he said in resignation while promising to continue the hunt for his Club.

Rangers missed out on the lucrative continental championships in the current season.

The indomitable Enugu Rangers is unfortunately excluded based on poor performance that placed it behind six other teams.

Six teams did better than Rangers, among them Rivers United(63), Kano Pillars(64), Nassarawa United(65), Kwara United(65), Enyimba(66), and the league Champions Akwa United(71 points).

Interestingly, Kano Pillars placed 6th on the League table, against Rangers’ seventh place finishing.

Despite a last-match landslide victory against Plateau United, Rangers finished seventh best in just ended 2020-2021 Professional League.
