I had wanted to play for Rangers – Ezeji


NPfl veteran, Victor Ezeji has revealed his long standing love for 2016 league champions Rangers International, recalling that he came severally to playing for the Coal City boys in the course of his career.

Ezeji, who holds an enviable record of playing in the league for 20 years, gave the Flying Antelopes a pat on the back for breaking the 32 years without a trophy jinx while thanking God for making it possible for him to successfully play 20 years in the league without blemish.

“Rangers is one club I have always wanted to play for, I was in Rangers camp but the Rivers team never wanted me to go so I didn’t get to lace my boots for Rangers,” he said on Friday while dishing out information ahead of his December 10 testimonial match in Port Harcourt.

Ezeji, who played for 11 clubs including Club Africain of Tunisia in the course of his career, hinted on the possibility of going into coaching among other post football options.

“I am open to a lot of options. Nothing stops me from becoming a coach, a pundit, sports administrator and so on,” he said.

Ezeji’s testimonial, which is expected to feature many veterans and current league players in the country, is coming six months after former Super Eagles captain Joseph Yobo was equally honoured with a testimonial match in Port Harcourt after a record 101 appearances for the national team.
