Rangers International FC of Enugu shot stopper, Nana Bonsu, has assured the club’s teeming supporters that he and his team mates will not go to Maseru to lie low and get consumed by their hosts, Bantu F.C of Lesotho as both sides trade tackles for a place in the group stage of Total CAF Confederation Cup.
The former Ghana’s national U-17 and U-20 goal keeper, in a statement by the club media/communication officer, Norbert Okolie, said it was gladdening to his heart to have contributed his part in seeing his club, Rangers get this far in the competition and hopes to make it better when they engage the Econet Premier League of Lesotho champions, Bantu FC on Sunday in Maseru.
“Truly speaking, God is the main reason we are where we are today in the competition, coupled with unity, self-determination and motivation from supporters, management and government.
“I have the belief that we can overcome the Bantu challenge and qualify for the group stage of the competition,” Bonsu said.
He further stated, “We are not afraid of our opponents, Bantu F.C but we only respect them for been the champions of Lesotho but that is where it stops as we have been training very hard since our last match and I believe that God will be on our side over the two legs.”
Looking back at his three years in the ‘Flying Antelopes’ fold that have seen him emerge league and cup champion, Nana said, “It has never been easy since I came here but I thank God almighty and all my supporters for being there for me. It can only get better as I believe that this season, we shall be crowned champions again both in the local and international competitions.”
The highly religious Nana is still very hopeful of manning the post for his country at the senior level but would not go out his way to achieve that.
“I still wish to be considered for a place in the Ghana senior national team but I would not go out of my way to achieve that just as I hope to keep defending the colors of my club, Rangers to the highest level.”
Rangers’ delegation will be leaving for the Southern African nation of Lesotho by Thursday for the game slated for Sunday, January 13, 2019 with the return leg fixed for Sunday, January 20, 2019 inside the main bowl of Nnamdi Azikiwe stadium, Enugu.
