CAF CC: Protesting Rangers Players Fail To Travel To Zambia
Reigning Nigeria League Champions, Enugu Rangers most likely need some sort of 'Deliverance Session' as the problems bedeviling the team have just gotten worse.
Still enmeshed in the controversies of sacking or not sacking their title-wining coach, the confusion in the camp of the Flying Antelopes took another embarrassing twist on Thursday with players refusing to board an Ethiopian Airlines flight.
They ought to be in Zambia for their CAF Confederation Cup second leg playoff clash this weekend.
Bounce News was told that the players are insisting that they are paid their travel allowances before they make the trip.
At the Enugu International Airport where they were scheduled to fly out via an Ethiopian Airlines flight, the players turned down offers by top government officials including the Enugu State commissioner for sports, Charles Ndukwe to board the plane.
They complained they are yet to be paid their travel allowance of less than $1,000 each for the trip to Algeria for a CAF Champions league match.
Following the intervention by the Enugu State Government, the team are now billed to travel to Ndola, Zambia on Good Friday.
