Niger Tornadoes players have been urged to put in their best in today’s match against defending champions Rangers international.
Chairman of the club, Adamu Aliyu, said on Saturday that the sum of N500,000 (Five hundred thousand Naira) awaits the team if they can secure a win over Rangers International.
Both Rangers and Tornadoes are heading into the match after what could pass for a good outing midweek with Tornadoes handing Wikki Tourist a 2-0 defeat while Rangers held Akwa United to a goalless draw away.
Today’s battle at the Cathedral will not be a tea party and will definitely be full of fireworks.
While the Flying Antelopes are working extremely hard to make the Cathedral a never lose arena, a motivated Tornadoes will definitely be on fire.
Tornadoes are not just playing for promise but believe in the chairman who backs words with action. Hon Adamu had earlier challenged the team to beat Wikki Tourist for N200, 000, and when they did he redeemed the sum while promising another.
While addressing the players, Hon Aliyu noted that boosting the morale of the players was something that must be done in order to get best out of them, adding that player’s welfare remains paramount.
