Enugu Rangers Ghanaian born goalkeeper, Nana Bonsu won the Nigeria Professional Football League title in his first season with the club last term. In this interview with Completesportsnigeria.com's ADEBOYE AMOSU, he speaks about his love for the club and Nigeria, as well as his expectations for the new season.
You have been with Enugu Rangers for two seasons now. What has the experience been like?
The experience has been great. When I joined Rangers from Ashanti Gold last season, I was told the club has not won the title for a long time and I was determined to help change that.
I thank God we were able to win it last season. I still have fond memories from our game against Sunshine Stars where I was carried high around the stadium by our fans after I saved a penalty.
I have enjoyed my stay here in Nigeria and don't have any regrets for now. Nigeria is now my second home. I love the fans and they love me too.
What does winning the Nigeria Professional Football League title mean to you?
To be part of history with Rangers last season was great for me. I won the Ghana Premier League title with Ashanti Gold last year before moving down here and I'm happy to win it with Rangers again.
Now, I'm a double champion, champion in Ghana and champion in Nigeria.
You were behind Emmanuel Daniel and Itodo Akor when you arrived Rangers. How were you able to topple the two to become the club's first choice goalkeeper?
It's all about hard work and dedication in training. I must say that the three of us don't see ourselves as rivals, but friends.
I just do my best in training and the coach decides who starts.
How would you compare the Ghanaian and the Nigerian Premier Leagues?
There is little difference in both leagues. In Ghana, we have good players which is the same here in Nigeria.
The level of competitiveness is high and to win the league in the two countries you have to be at your best.
Nigeria and Ghana are blessed with great footballers and I don't think I need to say much on that.
What are your targets in the new season?
I hope we can do better than we did last season. To win the title again will be great and most importantly, the CAF Champions League.
It's going to be a difficult task, but you have to beat the best to become the champion.
I believe in our team, and I know we can achieve great things together next season.
How disappointed are you missing out on the Super-Four title?
We did not do badly in the competition even though we didn't win it at the end of the day. We are preparing hard for the new season and it's part of our preparations.
It was a good test for us and we will ready when the season starts.
