Abdul Maikaba Leaves Rangers After Two Seasons In Charge.

Coach Abdul Maikaba of Rangers International has left the club after the expiration of his contract.

The coach failed to re-negotiate for extension, pointing to family pressure as his reason.

Maikaba has been the technical adviser of Rangers International F.C for the past two seasons.

He made the announcement at an end-of-the-season gathering of players, coaches, management, and backroom staff at the players’ camp, in Enugu on Thursday.

Coach Maikaba said that he won’t be re-negotiating his two years contract that lapsed with the end of the Federation Cup, stressing that, family pressure was the major reason for his not willing to renegotiate the contracts.

He stressed that, Rangers remains the only club that he was ending his contract with all his entitlements fully paid.

“It has been a fruitful two years of working in Enugu that saw us compete for honors in various competitions and got to the final of this year’s Federation Cup which we lost narrowly. I thank the government of Enugu state for the opportunity to serve”.

“I also thank the management, players, coaches, and other staff for their cooperation while my contract lasted. However, I wish to tell you all that I won’t be renegotiating my contract as pressures from the family front need my attention and I need to give it some attention,” Maikaba said.

He further stated, “Rangers will continue to have a special place in my heart going forward. In all the clubs I have handled, none of them gave me the platform and treatment to perform maximally. The players we have are one of the best I have worked with even though, we peaked lately. I also thank the fans and supporters for being there for us through thick and thin. I also appeal that efforts should be expedited to return the team to Enugu to prosecute their matches in the coming seasons.”

In an emotion-laden voice, the experienced gaffer thanked the government, management, players, coaches, and other staff of the club for a wonderful working relationship.
