Rangers International midfielder, Ugochukwu Ugwuoke is back to full training after a knee surgery he underwent five months ago.

Information from the Club’s media has it that the player rejoined team mates in training after they returned from Kaduna where they claimed all three points in the 2-0 win over hosts, Niger Tornadoes.

Ugwuoke has been out of action following the injury he copped in a matchday 8 fixture against Remo Stars at Nnewi in the 2022/2023 season.

“He was full of life at Tuesday’s training session monitored by Coach Fidelis Ilechukwu”, the Club media announced in a release.

Ugwuoke also spoke after the evening session to express relief and delight at his return and promised to challenge for a place in the squad.  He also thanked the club for seeing to his treatment and recovery, vowing to return the favour with utmost performance in matches when fielded.

“It is indeed a delightful moment for me to rejoin my teammates in training to challenge for a place in matches to defend the badge of the club.

“I feel so happy to be back. It is not easy passing through all the processes of surgery and rehabilitation to come back to give my best to help the team challenge for honors again.

“I give God all the glory just as I salute the management of Rangers under Barrister Amobi Ezeaku for standing behind me all through the trying moments of my career,” Ugwuoke told the Club media.

His mates, led by the captain, Chukwudi Nwaodu were on hand to celebrate his return and assured him that they would support him to fully integrate with the rest of the squad.

“We celebrate the return of one of us, Ugochukwu Ugwuoke, from a career-threatening injury to training. It gladdens our hearts that he will come with his wealth of experience and skills to help the squad fight for the league and Federation Cup titles this season”, Nwaodu said.

Ugwuoke had the knee operation on October 4, 2023, to correct the injury at a health facility in Enugu.
