Rivers United still sure of winning NPFL title despite COVID-19 threat
• Kpalukwu commends Eunisell for continued support
Rivers United are confident that they can win the Nigeria Professional Football League (NPFL) title when the league resumes after the COVID-19 enforced nationwide lockdown.
Speaking on the team, which draws front-shirt support from Eunisell, Rivers Rivers United General Manager, Okey Kpalukwu, said the Port Harcourt-based club is in the running to win the league title this season, adding they have put every measure in place to keep their players on their toes despite the coronavirus enforced break across the world.
“We are not hoping for anything less because we also want to be champions. But all of that will be determined on the pitch. Although we are praying to win the league, we will also put in our efforts and do what is necessary to make it easier for us to actualize our ambition. So we are not planning less, we are planning to win the league like every other team at the top of the standings,” said Kpalukwu.
He also spoke on their thriving partnership with Eunisell, describing it as “one of a kind.”
He commended Eunisell for backing the club through thick and thin, adding that the chemical and specialty fluid organization’s contribution to the club cannot go unnoticed.
“Our partnership with Eunisell is one of a kind. This is something most clubs are looking forward to having and that is why we must commend Eunisell for this partnership they have kept over the years with us.
“They have never failed us and they have always shown a huge presence. This has given the players some kind of boost as well. The partnership also points to the fact that we are looking for ways of new streams of income away from what the state government has given to us.
“At the same time, the relationship has been a balanced one. Rivers United played in the continent in the past with Eunisell as the front-of-the-shirt sponsor and registered Eunisell as one of our shirt sponsors with CAF, which helped us use our branded jerseys on the continent.”
