Coach of Enugu Rangers, Gbenga Ogunbote has stated that he doesn’t feel under pressure at his new club on the ground of huge expectations.
The Flying Antelope appointed Ogunbote after a disappointing outing last season losing their title in the process and also barely managing to survive the drop.
Ogunbote revealed that he wants to have a team that will challenge for the league title and one that will be competitive enough to win other titles as well insisting a better season awaits Rangers next season.
The new Rangers Manager, Ogunbote who recently left Enyimba after revealing a breakdown in negotiation with the people’s Elephant saw him depart the Aba club.
Ogunbote joined the People’s Elephants from Shooting Stars before the commencement of the 2016-17 season and led them to a third-place league finish, thus, securing a Caf Confederation Cup ticket.
But the coach elected to walk away from the former league champions after both parties failed to agree on terms of a new deal
“They desired to have me continue but they were unable to meet with the condition I set for them. I would like to continue working with my assistant coach, Abimbola Lawal because we have gone a long way together.
“I will also like to have my comfort too as a coach. I discussed all these with them but they are not disposed to approving them all. I have tried my best and I leave it to posterity to judge.
The experienced Manager joined Enugu Rangers subsequently after holding talks with the Board of the Enugu based premier League side in early in November.
