The management of Nigeria Professional Football League side Rivers United have handed the team’s Technical Adviser, Stanley Eguma, a one-match suspension following his late arrival for their league match against Plateau United on Wednesday.
According to a press release by the management which was made available by the club’s media officer Sammy Wejinya, coach Eguma is suspended for arriving 18 minutes after the match began.
“Technical manager of Rivers United FC of Port Harcourt, Stanley Eguma, has been hit with a one-match suspension,” the club stated.
“Eguma was suspended for reporting eighteen (18) minutes after kick-off to the venue of Wednesday’s NPFL game between Rivers United and Plateau United.
“Following this development, Eguma will not be part of the (Rivers) United team for this weekend’s NPFL game against Gombe United in Gombe.”
