Rivers United coach apologise to fans after Rangers defeat


Rivers United coach, Stanley Eguma has moved to apologise to fans of the club following their humiliating 0-4 loss to Enugu Rangers on matchday 34 of the Nigeria Professional Football League (NPFL).

United were comprehensively beaten the Flying Antelopes at the Nnamdi Azikiwe Stadium, Enugu following a barnstorming display by the hosts on Sunday.

“We want to apologize to the fans of Rivers United for such a heavy defeat at this crucial stage of the season.

“We did not see it coming as we prepared very well for this game.

“I acknowledge that we were beaten by a better side but this is football and these things can happen.

“We apologize unreservedly to our fans and promise to come back stronger from this,” he said.

Rivers United have four more fixtures, against Warri Wolves, Wikki Tourists, Abia Warriors and Akwa United, to navigate before the end of the season.
