Ishaq Rafiu Is Still Our Player- Rivers United
Following the winger’s rumored transfer to Slovenian champions, NK Maribor, Rivers United have asserted that Ishaq Rafiu is still their player, according to Completesports.com.
The Nigeria Professional Football League champions said any alleged transfer made without their knowledge would be a violation of the contract because they didn’t approve of his sale.
Tuesday saw the signing of Rafiu by NK Maribor.
For Stanley Eguma’s team in the Nigerian premier division last year, the player scored 14 goals.
The Port Harcourt team released a statement on Wednesday saying, “The management of Rivers United has been drawn to a fictitious report being circulated in a section of the social media suggesting that our player Ishaq Rafiu Kayode has left the club.
Such a story is entirely untrue and the result of the imagination of pranksters who wish to mislead the public’s gullible members. Ishaq Kayode Rafiu’s contract with Rivers United FC is still in effect, and as a result, any attempted transfer without the team’s knowledge or consent will simply be a breach of that contract.
