Rivers retain 21 for new season


The season of releasing players is here again and Rivers United have sieved a few off the roster. Only 21 players were retained for the new season as the team gets set to begin pre-season training.

Left back Gabriel Wassa, who shone like a million stars a year ago has been let go, Esosa Igbinoba is also out. The former Nasarawa United midfielder has battled injury and loss of form last term and might just head back to Lafia.

Veterans Austin Festus and Sunday Rotimi headline those that have been retained as Eguma sets to continue as coach.


Rivers United finished in 15th place on the log last season and will look to do better in the new season.
