The Flying Antelopes gaffer has already given a hint into his transfer plans as he works toward building a formidable team

Enugu Rangers coach Gbenga Ogunbote is already planning for the future as he has revealed his desire to add a young striker to his team soon.

The Flying Antelopes gaffer points out that quality strikers are not readily available.

“Getting a quality striker in the league is difficult and not peculiar to Nigeria alone. Once in a while, you are lucky to get one. We will make the best use of the situation we have found ourselves until we are able to get one that can adjust very quickly and fit into the team.

“We will likely go for a youngster that we can easily groom, who will understand the philosophy of the team and that of the coach. In no distant time we will get it right,” Ogunbote said in an interview with the NPFL official website.

Recently voted the best coach in Nigeria at the NFF Awards, Ogunbote is hoping to win another league title for the Flying Antelopes. 

Rangers are leading Group A of the NPFL with 31 points from 15 games and they have a massive game this weekend away to Enyimba in the Oriental Derby.
