Rangers International Football Club goalkeeper Nana Bonsu has extended his stay with the Nigerian premiership side after signing a new deal with the Enugu based club on Wednesday.
Bonsu, former Ashantigold SC shot stopper, signed the new deal for the next two seasons which will keep him with the club till 2021. Bonsu joined Rangers in January 2016 after a short spells Liberty Professionals and Ashantigold, and has since been the club’s safest pair of hands in between the sticks for Rangers.
In October last year, Bonsu produced a magical performance for Rangers when he climbed off the bench to help his side come back from a 3-0 down to beat Kano Pillars 4-2 on penalties to clinch the Aiteo Cup, which was the club’s first Nigerian cup won since 1983.
Kano Pillars had taken a 3-0 lead with just thirteen minutes left when Nana Bonsu was introduced in the game. His introduction changed the face of the game as Rangers managed to equalize the score in injury time to push the game into penalties. Bonsu managed to save two of the kicks during the penalty shoot-outs to enable Rangers record such a historic victory.
The Ghanaian goalie is expected to pull up great performances as usual in the coming season for Rangers in the Nigerian Professional Football League 2019/2020 season which is set to start by September 22.
