Rangers International midfielder Ugochukwu Ugwuoke is back to full training after undergoing knee surgery five months ago.


Information from the Club’s media has it that the player rejoined teammates 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 since suffering an injury in a matchday eight fixture against Remo Stars at Nnewi in the 2022/2023 season.


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


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 and vowed to return the favor with the utmost performance in matches when fielded.


“It is a delightful moment for me to rejoin my teammates in training to challenge for a place in matches to defend the Club’s badge.


“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 in fully integrating 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 bring his wealth of experience and skills to help the squad fight for the league and Federation Cup titles this season,” Nwaodu said.


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