This followed the club’s poor start to the 2016/17 Nigeria Professional Football League (NPFL), which has already seen them drop five points at home.

The Flying Antelopes currently sit 12th in the standings with six points from five games, after they were held 1-1 by Niger Tornadoes at Nnamdi Azikiwe stadium on Sunday.

And Chuckwu’s appointment accompanied a fact-finding meeting held on Monday at the Government House, Enugu, between the governor and stakeholders of the team.

The interest groups that attended the meeting included members of Rangers FC board, management, players, and supporters club.

After a unanimous agreement on the need to rejig the management of the side, Ugwuanyi announced the appointment of Chukwu, to take over from Ozor Chibuzo.

The appointment was with immediate effect and the new management was expected to halt the unimpressive start to the new Nigeria Professional Football League (NPFL) season.

Reacting, Chukwu thanked the governor for the appointment and his prompt intervention and promised to put in his best to ensure immediate improvement of the seven-time champions.
