CAFCC: Salisu reveals Rangers task as Pyramids names 23-man squad

Share This

Coach Salisu Yusuf is determined to help Enugu Rangers regain top form following their poor start to the season.

The Flying Antelopes are yet to record a win in the Nigeria Professional Football League this season as Pyramids FC of Egypt manager Sebastien Desabre named his 23-man squad for Sunday’s CAF Confederation Cup Group A clash against Enugu Rangers.
The matchday-one encounter will take place at the Nnamdi Azikwe Stadium, Enugu.
Desabre dropped summer signing Ahmed Ali from the travelling squad.
Erstwhile handler of the team, Benedict Ugwu was sacked on Sunday after the team’s shocking 2-0 home loss to Akwa Starlets.
Salisu will combine his new job with that of being assistant coach for Nigeria’s national team.
His appointment by the NFF comes as Enugu prepares to play in the group stage of the Confederation Cup, the continent’s second-tier club tournament.
“I am here on a technical assistance from the federation as Rangers is representing the country in continental club football,” said Yusuf.
Yusuf’s first game in charge will be Sunday’s Confederation Cup Group A fixture against visiting Egyptian side Pyramids.
Enugu Rangers will also face Mauritania’s Nouadhibou and another Egyptian side Al Masry, in the continental tournament.
He comes in to replace the sacked Benedict Ugwu and has the task of turning around Rangers’ poor form after just one win in five matches.
It will also give him the chance to rebuild his own dented reputation after serving a one year ban for taking cash from men posing as football agents.
