Nigerian champions Rangers have invited six foreign players for trial ahead of next season’s CAF Champions League.

The Flying Antelopes, alongside Rivers United, will represent Nigeria in Africa’s more prestigious club competition in 2017, having finished in the top two of the country’s topflight league last season.

Media Director of the Enugu-based side Foster Chime disclosed that the invited players would join the club in their pre-season camp in Benin, Edo State.

He, however, did not disclose their identity.

According to Chime, Rangers are signing new players that will add depth to the squad.

“We have already invited six players that are coming for trial and they will be playing with the team in our ongoing pre-season camp in Benin.

“The technical coaching crew will assess individual players on their ability to blend with the team and also consider other factors during the camp duration.

“Any of the players, who have what the team need, now by the assessment of the technical coaching crew, would likely make the team after the camping.

“This also means that those co-opted would be signed as our players at the end of the day,’’ he said.

Chime, however, did not disclose the criteria for the assessment of the invited players.
