Rivers State government, sponsors of Nigeria Professional Football League (NPFL) side, Rivers United have sent a note of warning to the club’s management with respect to their domestic results so far this season.
The Rivers State Honourable Commissioner of Sports, Boma Iyayi made this known during the presentation ceremony of the takeoff grant promised the club’s supporters’ club.
This follows the recent poor form of the Port Harcourt based club in recent times which have seen the last season’s runnerups fail to win in their last four attempts on the domestic front.
The commissioner warned the technical crew and the management team led by Coach Stanley Eguma and Chief Okey Kpalukwu respectively to either turn the fortunes of the club and justify the huge investments in the club or risk being relieved.
It can be recalled that Coach Stanley Eguma was given a three match ultimatum early last season which seemed to be the turning point of the team as they bombed forward to a continental finish and only getting knocked out of the federation cup in the quarterfinal stages by Enyimba FC in arguably controversial circumstances.
Rivers United sit 13th with just 10 points from seven matches.
