The management of the historic winners of the 2022 season of the NPFL, Rivers United, has reiterated that Ishaq Rafiu Kayode Remains Rivers United Player.

In a press release e-signed by the Management of Rivers United football club of Port Harcourt, says the attention of the club has been “drawn to a fictitious report being circulated in a section of the social media suggesting that our player Ishaq Rafiu Kayode has left the club.

Such report is completely false and a product of the imagination of mischief makers with the intent of misleading the unsuspecting members of the public”.

The state made available to the to the media by Mayuku Charles, Media Officer of the league winners,  says “Ishaq Rafiu Kayode is still a bonafide player of Rivers United FC as his contract with the team is still valid and as such any purported transfer without the knowledge and consent of Rivers United FC will only be a breach of contract.

As a club, we are not aware of any such purported transfer as the player only absconded from the club and this position has been made known to FIFA thus any acquisition of the player without our consent is null and void”.

The management concluded by saying that  “It is important to also note that Rivers United FC remain the only club that can release the said player to any other club when the proper things are done”.
