A two million Naira gift to Rangers by Enugu State Governor has torn the team apart rather than fire them up for Sunday’s derby against Enyimba.

AfricanFootball.com can report that some officials of the club Friday morning got into a shouting match because they felt short changed, after a training session at the Nnamdi Azikiwe Stadium in Enugu.

According to our ever reliable source who witnessed the show of shame Friday morning, the camp commandant and the kit manager who felt short-changed by the amount they received from the governor’s gift did not hide their emotions as they demanded for what they felt should be paid to them.

“It was really a shameful act from both club officials. This was supposed to be a gift to motivate the team for the task against Enyimba in Aba, but it now seems to be a curse,” said the source.

“It got so bad that the technical adviser in trying to settle the rift lost his eye glasses.

“I just hope this disgrace will not affect the players who have been putting their best in training for the Aba encounter.”

Paris Saint-Germain manager, Christophe Galtier has hailed Lionel Messi after the Argentine forward scored a bicycle kick in his side’s 5-0 win over Clermont in the Ligue 1 fixture on Saturday evening.

Galtier watched as PSG cruised to their first win of the new Ligue 1 season, with a 5-0 victory away to Clermont.

A brace from Messi and a goal each from Neymar, Achraf Hakimi and Marquinhos gave PSG the win over Clermont.

Messi scored an overhead kick, which even got the opposition fans on their feet to applaud him in the second half of the encounter.

Speaking after his side’s win, Galtier said of Messi during his post-match press conference: “I spoke with Leo during our stay in Japan and with the defensive sector as well to ensure that he can perform well all the time.

“He has a very sharp, very clear tactical sense. He quickly sees where he has to put himself, and the way he positions himself to play, he’s in an area he likes. He likes to play with the players around him. When Leo smiles, the team smiles too.

“He has been playing at a very high level for 17 years. He had a difficult season last year, he was getting used to it.

“All seasons before, it was a minimum of 30 goals. From the moment he has made complete preparation, that he has his bearings in terms of his family life and his club, his team and his partners, there is no reason for him not to have a great season. When he is playing with Kylian, we’ll have even more offensive power.”
