Recourse has finally gotten to Enugu Rangers after Warri Wolves allowed the club to employ the services of Sunday Mba in their trip to Angola to face Recreativo do Libolo, in the second- leg fixture of the CAF Champions League first round.
The AFCON 2013 hero will now make his Rangers debut this weekend after being cleared ‘in national interest.’
The deal has been on hold for a while after Warri Wolves demanded for a staggering transfer fee for Mba who has been training with Enugu Rangers since returning from AFCON 2013. ‘The Flying Antelopes’ had registered the star forward for the competition only to be denied ownership by Warri Wolves.
Rangers general manager Ozor Paul disclosed to MTNFootball.com that Mba is on the trip to Angola after his club reached an agreement with Warri Wolves because he is on ‘a national duty.’
“He has been cleared to play for us in Angola in the Champions League this weekend,” Paul said.
“And once we are back we will hope to finalise on his transfer.”
Innocent Obiekwo, Rangers technical director also confirmed the recent development from the Enugu camp.
Rangers had agreed to pay the sum of eight million naira for Super Eagles third- choice goalkeeper Chigozie Agbim, which allowed him to debut in the goalless draw against Recreativo in Enugu a fortnight ago.
Rangers are the only survivor from Nigeria on the continental stage, after Kano Pillars crashed out of the Champions League and the duo of Heartland and Lobi Stars missed out of the CAF Confederation Cup.
