Enugu Rangers’ CAF CC Game Moved after Flight Hitch

The Confederation of African Football ( CAF ) has set a new kick-off time for the Confederation Cup second-leg play-off game between Zesco United and Enugu Rangers.

Rangers flew into Ndola on Friday after a 12-hour delay at the Akanu Ibiam International Airport in Enugu after flight hitches.

 


 

In the same breath, some senior players, allegedly, held the club hostage as they demanded payment for a backlog of Match Bonuses and Allowances dating back to February.

 

 
According to a release published by Zesco United on Friday, the new kick-off time approved by CAF means the game was moved by two and a half hours.

 

 

The Release stated that:

” the Kickoff time for the 2nd leg of the Pre-group stage round against Rangers International of Nigeria has been moved from 15∶00 hours to 17∶30 hours tomorrow Saturday,15th April,2017.”
” Due to unforeseen circumstances Rangers missed their flight from Enugu to Addis Ababa yesterday.

” The team is scheduled to fly to Ndola today and will land at Simon Mwansa Kapwepwe International Airport at 14∶20 hours tomorrow.”

 

 

Zesco will be counting on home support at the Levy Mwanawasa Stadium to consolidate on their 2-2 first leg result.
