Rangers International FC attacker, Kelvin Itoya has downplayed the importance of the Easter break given to Nigerian Professional Football League clubs.
The fleet footed attacker who joined Rangers from Warri Wolves in a chat with naijafootballplus.com on Thursday opined that with the FIFA World Cup break around the corner, another break was not really needed and they received the information only on Wednesday evening.
“We weren’t aware that there was a break until yesterday but it won’t really change anything. For me, the break won’t change anything.
“The world cup break is by the corner so any other break for now is uncalled for,” he said.
He also revealed that he and his teammates are in camp and gearing up for the next game but are likely to get the Easter Sunday off which he’ll spend like every other normal Sunday.
“We are in camp preparing for Wednesday’s game.
“Sunday is a day off. I will go to church, come back and take a huge rest because Monday morning workout will be intensive so I will need to rest well and be prepared for work in the coming days,” he added.
Kelvin also had this Easter message for Christian faithfuls.
“Everyone should reflect on the reason for the season of Easter and know that Christ died and resurrected to save mankind and not to go about having too much to drink thereby causing chaos in peaceful places,” he adviced.
He concluded with his assessment of the season so far for his Rangers side and revealed some of their expectations as a team.
“Well I will say its been fair so far considering the fact that we started very poorly loosing our first two games.
“The teams expectation is to be champions again and we are working very hard so we can achieve that aim,” he concluded.
Kelvin Itoya has played a bit part role for Rangers this season with most of his appearances off the bench but has scored thrice already for the flying antelopes this season.
