“I am disappointed because l have not been in Abuja for three months and I did not grant interviews to just anybody,” Owumi told media.

“This person is just name dropping to test the waters. We [Enugu Rangers} have played over 16 friendlies since the league went on break. We spent hundreds of thousands to take my players to Owerri to play a friendly match with Heartland in Owerri last Sunday.

“Does things look like someone that is not prepared to kick off the league? They talked about fortifying our teams with what? Is he not aware that the transfer window is over? A thief must always leave a trace. He shows he does not even know how the league works.”
