AUDIO: Eguma Denies 3-Match Ultimatum, Targets Victory Against Wikki Tourists

Technical Manager of Rivers United Stanley Eguma says he is unaware of a reported 3-match ultimatum handed him to improve results or face further sanctions by the club’s management.

Rivers United lost 0-1 at home to Sunshine Stars on Wednesday in a Match Day 30 clash of the Nigeria Professional Football League (NPFL) and various media reports claim the long-serving tactician has been mandated to improve the fortunes of the team or face stiffer punishments.

Asked about his reaction to the reported ultimatum, Eguma said: “No comments. I don’t have any comment on that because I have not heard anything about that (the 3-match ultimatum).”
Rivers United are currently placed 16th (a place above the relegation zone) on the NPFL standings with 37 points from 28 matches and will next face Wikki Tourists on Sunday.

Eguma however says his team is prepared and ready for the visit of Wikki Tourists as the defeat to Sunshine Stars now belong in the past.

“We are prepared. We have trained, worked hard and corrected our mistake from the last game which lost,” he said.

“It was a very painful loss to Sunshine (Stars). I think we have kept that behind us and (we are) looking forward to a better result come tomorrow’s game (against Wikki Tourists).

“The players too have dusted themselves up from that defeat and they are looking forward to improve on their performances tomorrow. So we are ready,” Eguma concluded.
