Rivers Utd’s foreign stars want CAF CL ticket


Port Harcourt – Three foreign stars at Rivers United, Godbless Asamoah, Wilson Andoh and Guy Kuemian have expressed hope that the club claims at least a Caf Champions League ticket at the end of the current Nigeria Professional Football League (NPFL) season.

United will be guaranteed a place in Africa’s elite club competition next year if they finish in the top two place in this season’s NPFL and they still retain a mathematical chance of winning the title at the end of the current campaign.

The Port Harcourt club currently trail the leaders, Enugu Rangers by three points and will be guaranteed, at least a second place finish in the league, if they win their final league game of the season, away to Akwa United.

Asamoah was the first to speak and he explained that winning the crucial game against the ‘Promise Keepers’ is vital if his side wants to end the season on a high.

“Since we drew that last (NPFL game at home to Abia Warriors last Sunday), the mind set amongst the players is to go to Uyo and win against Akwa United.

“That will make the fans and us, players happy so we will do our best to win that last game.

“We are working hard to achieve that,” the Ghanaian striker said.

Asamoah’s compatriot, Andoh also echoed the sentiments of his teammate, stating that a win in Uyo is non-negotiable.

“We need to win against Akwa United and we have our destiny in our hands.

“Drawing against Abia Warriors was not good for us as we felt we would get the win and consolidate our position on the log,” he said.

The final salvo was fired by Ivoirian marksman, Kuemian who spoke about his desire to help ‘the Pride of Rivers’ secure Caf Champions League football this season.

“The match against Akwa United is important for us especially as we want Caf Champions League football in Port Harcourt next season.

“We are preparing very hard for the game on Sunday so we can get the win,” he said.

Rivers United is currently in second place on the NPFL standings with 57 points from 35 matches.
